  1. 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

    • Add ability to customize the taxonomy/which subjects appear

      It would be nice to suppress subject areas that appear in BrowZine which are not relevant to a particular library. For example, for hospital libraries to suppress the Arts & Humanities subject area.

      • 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 access to browzine.com available to mobile devices too

                  I (Leiden Univ) deleted the app from my mobile device and went to browzine.com. The app will be opened but I prefer the mobile website.

                    Take a look! BrowZine.com is now accessible on your smart phone for all of the “public” features that do not require you to sign into your account (My Bookshelf and My Articles). The mobile responsive one nicely suggests to the user to download the app to use these features. We will be following up this release by another one in the future that will contain mobile responsive versions of those features as well. Thanks for your interest in this enhancement!

                  • For "My Bookshelf": alerts for new papers only within selected keywords

                    Only new papers accourding to keywords appear in "My bookshelf", not hole issues.

                    • Allow users to simultaneously access multiple institutions' resources.

                      Our faculty members are affiliated with multiple institutions and find the process of signing in and out cumbersome. They would like to be able to access all of the content they are entitled to access, regardless of which institution provides the access.

                      • Add punctuation to the Subject line when sharing articles via email

                        To separate "Sharing" from the article title, to have some of the words stand out a bit more, and to have it look less like spam, add a colon (:) after Sharing, and enclose via BrowZine in brackets,
                        eg from this: Sharing A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level via BrowZine
                        to this: Sharing: A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level (via BrowZine)

If this requires a more comprehensive list of specific titles for each publisher so much the better (but sorry for the extra work :-) )

                                    • WebDAV support for Zotero

                                      Currently BrowZine only supports saving PDFs directly to Zotero's servers. Zotero features a capability to save to WebDAV services instead, but this is not currently supported in BrowZine. Add support so that a user could put in their personal WebDAV credentials and save PDFs there instead of at Zotero's servers.

                                      • Add a feature to the settings tab that allows users to contact the library

                                        In addition to the contact support feature under the settings tab, it would be useful for the ability to send an email straight our to the library.

                                        • 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!
