Web Version of Browzine Now Available!

We now have access to the Web version of Browzine

Everything you love about the Borwzine App, available from your desktop; BrowZine provides a great mechanism to keep track of your favorite journals and to learn about the new developments in your field; It also can allow you to easily see similar titles to the ones you are familiar with in order to broaden your knowledge of related scholarly literature.

From BrowZine Site:

“Study should not be confined to a search box

Browsing scholarly journals is key to the research process, a vital way researchers familiarize themselves with new academic disciplines. Unlike search services that presume users know what they are looking for, with browsing, researchers learn what topics are important to the field and gain insight into how research is conducted.

BrowZine’s easy to navigate bookshelves and compelling visual display allows users to easily find subject areas of interest, to see available scholarly journals, and get to content with a single click.

Find, follow and stay current with key journals

With the ever increasing scholarly output, staying current with key journals is now more important than ever. Old systems like email alerts and RSS feeds are clumsy, vary by platform, and give users links that provide no way for the user to authenticate for access.

BrowZine’s My Bookshelf feature makes staying up-to-date easy. Users simply find key journals, then click Add to My Bookshelf. New article notifications are sent automatically, synced across devices, and BrowZine always gets the user to full text, whether the user is on site or working remotely.

Promote serendipity

The chance encounters with information is often the catalysis for new ideas.
BrowZine’s amazing interface visualizes your collection and presents journals in a uniform way. Researchers can browse across many journals quickly and easily, enjoying a whole new way to use your e-journal collection and increasing the likelihood they will find what they didn’t know they were looking for.”
