  1. Treat end dates of journal coverage in similar way to embargoed content

    I believe you may already be working on this. Could content beyond an end date of coverage be shown in the same way as embargoed content so users can request articles in these later issues from the library? Posting this to get an update on when this is likely to go live. Thank you.

    • Customization options for homepage image

      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.

      • create a new issue alert.

        If a subscriber has a journal title on his/her bookshelf, I suggest the creation of an alert to notify the subscriber when a new issue becomes available.

        • 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.

              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.

            • 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.

              • 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!

                • 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 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!
