BrowZine Features

  1. Enable "Universal Links" for BrowZine

    I'm suggesting that you enable Universal Links. On a device with the BrowZine app, a BrowZine Web (https) link to an article or journal would open in the app instead of the browser.

    A similar idea was posted and closed a few years ago (https://support.thirdiron.com/forums/181845-browzine-features/suggestions/6675132-create-persistent-links-to-open-within-browzine). But it was not fully implemented.

    More about this here: http://bula.us/SomeLinks.html.

  2. audio

    It would be great if there could be an audio option added for BrowZine articles. For example, it would be perfect if I could listen to BrowZine articles while jogging at the gym.

  3. OpenAthens validation in app

    In the BrowZine app new users at our institution are prompted with OpenAthens login. For some reason wrong username and password combinations are accepted.

    Suggestion 1: validate Openathens credentials. Or even better: Suggestion 2: allow for OpenAthens personalisation:

  4. Enable support for abstract-only "articles"

    Some publications include links not out to full text but to abstracts, perhaps highlighting presentations at recent conferences or announcing future papers, etc. Currently BrowZine ignores these as "non-articles" but knowing about these could be beneficial to some researchers in the BrowZine environment such as linking to abstracts like this from JCO:

  5. TOC enhancements

    Visualization of TOC for a journal can be largely improved, at least for the mobile app. I have here some suggestions:
    - possibility to sort in different ways (newest first/last, unread first/last)
    - possibility to hide read articles
    - add gestures to mark as read (swipe)
    - visualize TOC as list of titles (as now) or list of titles with abstract (at least few words of it)

  6. Allow customizable journal title selection for the widget

    It would be useful to be able to select specific titles to be displayed on the widget. This would mean they could be in different subject areas, allow more personalized choices, and avoid embargoed titles.

  7. We'd like this sorting enhancement, please...

    Using the sorting option, titles with current full text would be displayed first, followed by embargoed content, with unsubscribed titles last.

  8. Rename "My Bookshelf" to something like "Favorites"

    The tab My Bookshelf is confusing to me. I feel like people will think they can search for our e-books using this platform. Is there way to change the name of that particular tab to something like Favorites or My Favorite Journals?

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Destination Wedding

    Destination wedding is a dream for most couples and it is a fantastic idea but planning and putting it together combines the complexity of both, a regular wedding and a honeymoon. So put your thinking cap on before you set your heart on a destination for your nuptials.

    "Nothing great can be achieved without enthusiasm" (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

    Your ideal destination wedding is not something unachievable. You simply have to plan efficiently and opt for an aesthetically pleasing and budget friendly place that will help you create memories to cherish for a lifetime.

    While planning a destination wedding always consider…

  15. Allow users to send original article URL to social media

    I don't really use Browzine's Share to Social feature because it shares a browzine URL with no preview, no article title, no excerpt from the abstract, etc. If there were an option to tweet the publisher's article URL instead, I'd likely use it a lot more.

    It would be nice to change the "BrowZine Library" header to something institution-specific.

  18. 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…
