BrowZine Features

  1. create lists of unread articles

    Sometimes I find new articles get embedded really far into the journal volume list and it's difficult to find them if the journal publishes a lot. It would be nice if the new unread articles could also be viewed directly in a list, as I think this would be easier to parse through quickly.

  2. Include Abstact Images in the ToC

    Enable images associated with the abstracts to be visible in the ToC. This is especially import for chemistry journals, as the abstract images contain significantly more information than the title.

  3. mark issue as read

    Duplicate the 'mark issue as read' button at the bottom of the list of articles (web interface), so you don't have to scroll back up to click it.

  4. 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.

  6. Add built-in function to close/exit BrowZine on smartphone

    There isn't currently a built-in function to close/exit the BrowZine app on a smartphone. As a work around, I had to restart my device. It is easy to see how such a feature would be very useful.

    BrowZine is designed to be available for the user whenever they need it, so there is not a function to “close/exit” the app on mobile devices. If this is something you do want to do on a regular basis however, I would encourage you to look at our instructions for cold starting the app which should achieve much the same effect without needing to restart your device:

    iOS:

    Android/Kindle Fire:

    Thanks!

  7. Would love to see holdings information when browsing so users don't have to load each one at a time to see if they can get full tex

    At the moment you have to open each journal title to find out what access is available to the user. It would be much more intuitive to have this information at the browse page.

  10. Show all journals in the library and their number in addition to journals and their number in each category.

    Users want to see the scope/size of the library. They are asking how many journals are available in total. Subject categories artificially and subjectively segment journals. They may hide some journals from the users especial in the highly interdisciplinary research. Researchers do not want to jump between multiple categories and repeat browse in each.

  11. Synchronize PDFs in Saved Articles across devices.

    I find selecting PDFs for later reading on an iPhone quite doable, but when I want to read them on the ipad or PC; I have to duplicate that chore. Ideally, Saved articles and later the Reading List on the PC would sync.

  13. Please include individual Open Access articles that are published in subscription journals.

    Many subscription journals include individual articles that are Open Access. These often carry a CC licence or can be Identified using the NISO standard: http://www.niso.org/workrooms/ali/
    Please include them in the Open Access collection.

  14. 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

  16. Allow users to simultaneously access multiple institutions' resources.

    Our faculty members are affiliated with multiple institutions and find the process of signing in and out cumbersome. They would like to be able to access all of the content they are entitled to access, regardless of which institution provides the access.

  17. Please expand usage statistics with an overview of registered users/accounts per institution

  18. Add punctuation to the Subject line when sharing articles via email

    To separate "Sharing" from the article title, to have some of the words stand out a bit more, and to have it look less like spam, add a colon (:) after Sharing, and enclose via BrowZine in brackets,
    eg from this: Sharing A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level via BrowZine
    to this: Sharing: A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level (via BrowZine)
