      We have been in contact with ProQuest and as of April 22, 2016 they have no information about a new API that will support exporting from 3rd parties to Refworks 3. Refworks 2 has a mature API which BrowZine uses to support those customers and will continue to do so. ProQuest needs to produce an API for Refworks 3 in order for BrowZine to interact with it. We will keep you posted on this thread as we hear about ProQuest’s progress on delivering the new API.

    • 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.

        • Please add a search box to search the journals (ideally all in one go)

          Also please ensure this search option searches new and old volumes and updates you when articles are published meeting your criteria. This would be great for academics and students alike. Seth

          • 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…

              • Allow libraries to customize messaging that shows up for embargoed journal issues (for ILL/Link Resolver integration)

                Allow libraries to customize this to more specifically address ILL or Link Resolver integrations.

                Specific features to customize:
                1) Messaging in orange highlighted box on TOC page
                2) Messaging in interstitial window: "Your library does not have the full text of:" ... "... but we may be able to get it for you!"
                3) Wording of button/link text (currently says: "Request this item and/or check additional sources"

                • Allow downloading of articles previously saved in Zotero.

                  Allow loading of saved articles from my Zotero library and my PC so I can keep all my journal articles on my BrowZine bookshelf.

                    • Eliminate "The" at the beginning of journal titles.

                      Some of the titles start with "The" (The Journal of Chemical Physics), so if someone's browsing a shelf for the title they'd have to look in the T's rather than the J's.

                      • Allow a user to bulk transfer articles saved in the app

                        This would be useful to backup articles found and saved in BrowZine in a service like DropBox, Mendeley or other service.

                        • Add journals from all publishers and users will only get access to what their university subscribe to. They will get a turn away otherwise.

                          • 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

                              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.

                                Provide options for libraries to select an image of journal titles representative of their holdings / user community. E.g. a medical library could select a stock image reflecting top medical journals while a liberal arts college could select an image reflecting top titles from a variety of disciplines.
