    • Please include individual Open Access articles that are published in subscription journals.

      Many subscription journals include individual articles that are Open Access. These often carry a CC licence or can be Identified using the NISO standard: http://www.niso.org/workrooms/ali/
      Please include them in the Open Access collection.

        • Include abstracts when sharing article citations via email

          Whenever possible, include abstracts when sharing article citations via email; this would make it easier for the recipient to determine if the article is really of interest.

          • Error alerts/log for library

            If a user encounters an error such as "Full Text Failure - Your institution does not have access to this title. Please see your library for assistance", chances are they won't contact the library. It would be great if there was an option for the library to somehow be able to access a log or alert that these errors are occurring, so then we may properly update our holdings

            • Please add F1000 Workspace as an option for export

              Some of my users have fallen in love with F1000Workspace at http://f1000.com/work/, and would very much like BrowZine to be able to export articles to it as it does with Mendeley, Zotero, etc.

                • Enable sharing of whole issue

                  Provide a means of sharing a link to an issue.

                  Currently, BrowZine makes it very easy to share individual articles, but in the iPad app, I can't currently see a way to share a link to a whole issue (apologies if I've missed this). This would support a range of a library's current awareness services.

                  • Enable marking a whole issue as a favourite

                    Many/most journals release special issues dedicated to specific topics. It would be valuable to be able to mark a whole issue as a favourite, so that I can easily return again and again until I've read or saved all articles of interest (particularly useful for those weekly journals, where it is easy to get behind). I was thinking that enabling a change of colour in the list of issues would be one way of handling this, or enabling the addition of an icon to the list of available issues, but there are probably other/better ideas.

                    • Add Yammer to "Social" options in sharing panel

                      Yammer is an enterprise-level Social network tool with Groups functionality. It would be great to be able to share an article found on BrowZine to a group in Yammer, effectively providing a broadcast of an article to an engaged audience. The Yammer icon would ideally be one option in the Social section of the Share window.

                                  • Make it possible to mark an article as "unread" again

                                    It's not frequent, but sometimes I'll see an article I really like, click it and get the "Not available yet, try later" error. I'd like to keep it unread so I remember to go back it later, but apparently "once clicked, always read."

                                    Not a big deal, just for your consideration. Thanks!

                                        • Have the app indicate when I have reviewed a journal

                                          put the date of the issue in the dropdown box under "Available Issues" of a journal. If I do not remember if a journal is monthly/weekly etc. then I have no idea of Issue 2, for example, is the one I have browsed or not without actually going through it again.
