  1. Display not only articles, but also the section they belong to in TOC

    Many journals have their articles grouped into different types (e.g. Research Article, Book Review, Original Research Article, Review Article etc.). In the original TOC of the journal this is visible and helps the reader to separate the different types of articles. However, in BrowZine this information gets lost. Is the a possibility to retain it? It would be a great help for our users.

    • Filter Out "Accepted Manuscripts" from BrowZine until there is actual content available

      Some publishers like Oxford and IEEE sometimes produce an "article in press" which does not lead to full text since the publisher has not yet posted the document. Suppress these items from BrowZine, if possible, so that users being alerted about their existence don't waste time chasing items not yet available.

        Toggle for display "All" vs "Unread Only".

        For some journals (e.g. Open Access journals like eLife or the Frontiers journals), the number of articles per issue can get huge, and BrowZine appears to sort them alphabetically by title. This can make finding the unread articles (with a blue dot) time consuming. It would be easier if it were possible to toggle between displaying only unread articles vs all articles.

        • Provide support for searching for titles by abbreviation

          Many users are familiar with standard abbreviations for their titles, so allowing the search to be able to translate these abbreviations into relevant titles would be helpful to them.

            • Option for "Export all citations"or "export selected citation"

              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.

              • 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"

                • F1000Workspace functionality (like Mendeley and Zotero)

                  F1000Workspace (from F1000.com), which is a citation manager like Zotero and Mendeley. Our users prefer it and would like Browzine to work with it.

                  • Add additional bookcases to My Bookshelf

                    64 seems an arbitrarily low number of journals to track--I'd like to be able to keep tabs on more.

                      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,

                      • 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.

                        • Ability to customize button text and links for BrowZine marketing widget

                          This is referring to the "Explore Journals" and "Watch the Video" buttons, and would allow libraries to customize both the URL and the button text.

                          • 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.

                              Include PubMed IDs and PubMed Central IDs in the metadata that is sent to the ILL form upon integration. In addition, include PMIDs and PMCIDs with other exports, for example, to bibliographic management software.

                                  Integrating the ability to login using SSO would make accessing BrowZine much easier.

                                      As an instructor or librarian you can for instance show students easily which scientific journals are of interest for a particular course or educational program.

                                      • 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.

                                          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.
