  1. Change system message when there's no match for a title or the title has no ISSN

    If I search for a title in any of these categories

    * Not included in our BrowZine instance
    * Not included in our OCLC A-Z list
    * Does not have an ISSN

    I receive this message:

    "No matches for <title>. Title may not be BrowZine enabled at this time, but still available at your library. Please click here to search for your title again at your library."

    I would like for it to read:

    "No matches for <title>. Please click here to search for the title in your library's journals list."

    Please either change the message globally or allow customization…

    • Add functionality to import search results from e.g. Web of Science

      This would greatly improve the workflow of going from query to full text article.

      • Add the possibility to open an article from another app (e.g. Feedly) in Android.

        Case in point: I browse headlines from journals through their rss-feeds on Feedly, and would love to be able to open the full text article in Browzine.

        The added benefit of this as opposed to opening it in a browser is the reduced loading time, improved readability, and the built in access through my library's proxy that Browzine offers.

        I see that from Feedly I can 'share' the link to different apps on my tablet, e.g. Gmail, clipboard, etc. It would be great if Browzine could be added to that list, so that the full text could be read from…

          • Provide support for searching for titles by abbreviation

            Many users are familiar with standard abbreviations for their titles, so allowing the search to be able to translate these abbreviations into relevant titles would be helpful to them.

            • Add built-in auto-read feature

              It would be wonderful to have an auto-read feature built-in the app. This could be used for those interested in an article but have too small a screen, listening to an article while on the road (or wherever), and for BrowZine accessibility for those with poor to minimal eyesight. I think this support facet could greatly increase ‘everyday’ usage of the app.

              • Option for "Export all citations"or "export selected citation"

                It takes time to manually download every citation, especially when you want to download a whole edition. An "Export all" and "Export selected citations" function would come in handy.

                  • Allow title page additions to shelves.

                    Allow titles to be added to book shelves from the list page, instead of forcing the user to go to the individual journal pages to add the title.

                        Doing so would make the titles much easier to browse.

                          This is referring to the "Explore Journals" and "Watch the Video" buttons. Presently the links can be customized for the two buttons on the widget, but the button TEXT cannot. This suggestion is to allow libraries to also customize the button text to fully customize the two buttons.

                            • Show all journals in the library and their number in addition to journals and their number in each category.

                              Users want to see the scope/size of the library. They are asking how many journals are available in total. Subject categories artificially and subjectively segment journals. They may hide some journals from the users especial in the highly interdisciplinary research. Researchers do not want to jump between multiple categories and repeat browse in each.

                              • Switch Off Warnings

                                Allow user to switch off display of warnings, such as 'Authentication Failed' in the Preferences/User Settings. E.g. I know when I am on the intranet or not and what to expect in both cases, so no warning needed.

                                  I noticed if I click on a journal with unread articles, I start in the latest table of content, which is often not where unread articles are. These are often in "Articles in Press" and I suggest to be brought to that section.

                                          There are currently only 4 journals allowed on each shelf. I have my shelves (and book cases) categorized and it would be nice to be able to fit all journals of interest in that specific category. Unlimited number of journals per shelf would be idea, but dramatically increasing the number of journals per shelf is needed.
