I suggest you ...

Add ability to search within the journal. Many times I would be difficult to find the article using the volume only.

    Please add the possibility to search within each journal. It is frustrating not being able to do that.
    It seems, this was suggested already in 2012???
    What is going on?

    Hi, Please add the ability to search inside the journals... It would help enormously when researching for a specific topic. For the moment my browsing on BrowZine lasts only for a couple of minutes and than I go directly to each journal to complete my search. It is a shame. Thank you.

    It's hard to believe that this fundamental feature hasn't been sorted out yet. Please add. The inability to search within or across journals based on keyword, title, author, year is essential for efficient searching. Currently, I end up using one or more outside search engines to get all the appropriate information and then tediously search through the journal issues on Browzine. It bums me out when I open Browzine's app or website. Please help.

    Looks like it's been six years since this idea was first proposed here, but I'm in favor of it, too. Many times I've thought that a certain journal available through BrowZine would have a useful article, but I have to use a separate database to find it. Would love to be able to do it within the BrowZine UI.

    I'm with the others. It seems it would remove an extra step to be able to search for a topic or "phrase" within the content of the journals. Browzine is a great platform but seems to be missing a crucial component for really efficient searches

    I just finished reviewing all the feature requests (100 as of today) and think this is the most essential and critical thing that Browzine is missing and the one thing that makes me reluctant to make this tool more central on our library website. I've long been envious of the integration that customers of the Summon service have that let them use the Summon API to embed a search box in the Serials Solutions e-journal portal.


    For an example of this, see this example of a search for "journal of social psychology" in the University of Richmond's Boatman Library e-journal search tool:


    We'd like to be able to draw on the Primo API to embed a search box in the Browzine interface (specifically, in the landing page of any given journal).

    Searching for a specific terms within a journal is a really important feature.
    It would be great to see it in the next udpdate of the app!

    The president took nearly 3 years to respond to this idea. Not only that, such a seemingly basic feature has not been implemented since this request 5 years ago. Wow.

    Also please ensure this search option searches new and old volumes and updates you when articles are published meeting your criteria. This would be great for academics and students alike. Seth

    Would be great to use a search engine to look through the entirety of a journals back catalogue using boolean operators and advanced search options. It feels like a necessary feature for academic research. Brilliant to have to direct access to specific journals through this portal, but really need to be able target certain keywords to make it useful.

    Please add a way to add key word search, i.e., atrial fibrillation, anticoagulants, SGLT-2, etc.
