BrowZine Features

  1. 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.

  2. Add built-in auto-read feature

    It would be wonderful to have an auto-read feature built-in the app. This could be used for those interested in an article but have too small a screen, listening to an article while on the road (or wherever), and for BrowZine accessibility for those with poor to minimal eyesight. I think this support facet could greatly increase ‘everyday’ usage of the app.

  3. 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.

  5. Allow title page additions to shelves.

    Allow titles to be added to book shelves from the list page, instead of forcing the user to go to the individual journal pages to add the title.

  8. 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"

  9. Switch Off Warnings

    Allow user to switch off display of warnings, such as 'Authentication Failed' in the Preferences/User Settings. E.g. I know when I am on the intranet or not and what to expect in both cases, so no warning needed.

  10. Start

    On the PC, when I go to http://browzine.com, I'd like to start on My Bookshelf - as long as I'm logged in. This is in analogy to how Browzine behaves on the iPad. When not logged in, Browzine would start in the Browzine Library.

  11. 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.

  12. Increase the number of journals allowed on each shelf.

    There are currently only 4 journals allowed on each shelf. I have my shelves (and book cases) categorized and it would be nice to be able to fit all journals of interest in that specific category. Unlimited number of journals per shelf would be idea, but dramatically increasing the number of journals per shelf is needed.

  13. 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.

    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.

  15. Allow a user to mark an issue unread (the system already marks articles unread when a new issue/article comes out)

    It would be useful for a user to mark an issue unread for them to better keep track of issues/articles that they wish to read, whether the issue is new or not. Note that BrowZine already marks new articles/issues unread.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  19. Enable a way to bookmark a spot in a journal

    It can sometimes be useful to not necessarily save a particular article but to bookmark my place when scanning through numerous old issues of a journal so that I can easily pick up where I left off later. Creating a function where I can place this marker on an article within an issue which is easily retrievable from the journal level and that would sync across devices would allow me to easily pick up where I left off, regardless of the device I'm using.

  20. Add the ability to share without requiring the user to download the paper

    When using the iPad app I often I see an article title that I want to send to another colleague that is not related to my research field. It would be great to have a way to share paper with a colleague without first downloading the paper to my device.

    On the iPad this could easily be achieved through right swiping the paper title with configurable sharing options available.
