        • make it possible to read the abstracts (if present) in ToC screen

          Currently you ALWAYS have to download pdf to be abled to see if the article is really interesting or not. The abstracts help in a great way!

          • Please expand usage statistics with an overview of registered users/accounts per institution

            We would like to know how many persons (staff and students) of our institution downloaded BrowZine and created an account.

              • Add email notifications when a new issue is released for a journal on your bookshelf

                Add email notifications when a new issue is released for a journal on your bookshelf. I Currently have to go in and check, so it would be nice if I could be prompted.
                thanks,
                Jeremy

                • Provide support for adding non-library subscribed titles to My Bookshelf

                  A researcher may have individual subscriptions available to them and/or they are interested only in receiving TOC alerts for a title the library as a whole may not subscribe to. Provide a way to put these titles as well on My Bookshelf for easy access to these titles as well.

                  • Start with unread

                    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.

                    • Enable a user to have more than one library affiliation without logging out

                      This is a fairly common scenario for faculty and students who are in Medicine, for example, and who may have access to both resources available at a hospital library as well as a university.

                      • 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.

                        • Share shelfs with other users

                          It would be great if a user could have multiple shelfs and share shelfs with other users. Sharing both journals and specific articles. For example: A professor could compile a shelf for a specfic masters course and share it with the students.

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

                              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.

                              • 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!

                                    • Automatically launch VPN App if needed by BrowZine

                                      Some institutions require VPN apps to use BrowZine such as Cisco's AnyConnect or Junos Pulse. Automatically launching these services when required would streamline BrowZine use while off-site for these institutions.

                                      • 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.

                                          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.
