BrowZine Features

  1. Indicate the open access status of articles within a journal in the BrowZine interface.

    Indicating which articles are open access within BrowZine (particularly those under embargo) would provide better telegraphing of user experience when an article is clicked.

  3. https://www.biorxiv.org/ and other similar preprint servers

    When searching in EMBASE and other databases we get records from https://www.biorxiv.org/ and other preprint servers. These have DoI and could resolve but do not seem to be included in your index? https://www.medrxiv.org/ another example thanks

  4. Game played on both mobile devices and computers

    Blockpost is the newest first-person shooter game that is free to play and can be played on both mobile devices and computers. This game is a great example of how well the first-person shooter (FPS) genre and cubic 3D graphics can work together.
    On every level of blockpost, you can see cubes. Teams will compete against each other at each table (can be 2 or more teams). Put an end to the enemy's life by killing them with your knife or gun. There will also be hidden chests all over the battlefield. To add to your arsenal, you just…

  6. Create a subject for politics, philosophy, and economics (PPE)

    Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE) is one of our fastest-growing majors and it would be helpful if it had its own subject in BrowZine. I would put it under each of its constituent disciplines.

  7. Exclude In Press Articles from Unread Count

    Journals frequently add new articles to the In Press section of their websites at sporadic times and with chaotic organization. I prefer to know when a new issue is released so I can sit and read through the issue.

    Please add a feature to hide the In Press articles or at least exclude them from the unread count.

    Thanks

  8. Set a filter for current journals in any subject area

    Enable a filter on a URL to select only journals where the current issue is available. Some thing like https://browzine.com/libraries/956/subjects/57/bookcases/69?sort=title&view=current. This would highlight a library's range of up to date journals

  9. Add link to See All in the banner text for journals without full-text to the present day

    We have holdings for titles in alternative databases that are not reflected as the best version in the BrowZine interface and are excluded from displaying to our patrons, as the default interface uses the publisher version rather than the database.

    We would like to update the "No Full Text available after [date]. Please click an article to explore additional access options" text to read, "No Full Text available after [date.] See All of your library's holdings" and include a link to the See All URL on the left-hand side. That link is easily missed by novice users.

    We believe that…

  11. Libkey.io and links

    It'd be preferable is the linking options in libkey.io (PDF, article link, and view in context) could open in a new tab. This way if a user has to lookup more than 1 article, they don't need to backtrack.

  13. Option to sort the articles so that new articles come at the top

    For open journals, there are usually hundreds of articles per issue and they are continuously updated. It would be useful if we could have an option to sort the articles by date (new to old, or something like that) rather than having to scroll all the way down.

  14. Adding an "Notebook" function to "My Articles"

    After reading a paper, I really want to write down some notes about the paper, like "the main purpose of the paper", "the interesting points of the paper", etc. It is very useful for future review. However, under each item (paper), we can only download, export citation or share. It would be much convenient if we could add some notes under each item.

  15. In addition to BrowZine search results, include further option "None of these? Search your library catalogue"

    If a user performs a search in BrowZine and BrowZine finds no results, the user will be presented with a link saying 'No matches for “XXXXX”. 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.'

    This option to search in your library holdings this option is only presented if BrowZine finds NO matches to the search. If BrowZine finds any matches - either in journals supported by BrowZine, or journals not supported by BrowZine - then the only options are those presented…

  17. Add an option to show BibTeX data in .html

    Some users' workflows involve copying and pasting BibTeX information, vs. downloading a .bib file. This is the user experience for Google Scholar.

    Not sure whether changing to just .html would be best, or changing to add another option, e.g.: BibTeX (download) and BibTeX (.html)

  20. enable multiple holding years to be displayed on Journal titles.

    Some titles may have broken holdings years (e.g. 1990-2005, 2011-present) and it would be good to have a way to display this information in BrowZine records.
