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.

  2. Remove the 4 journals limit per shelve

    Remove the limit of 4 journals per shelve on the bookshelves (too much white space on the right-hand part of the virtual shelve). I prefer the UI of the Browzine Library. Also improve the drag-and-drop journals implementation, the current 'select-drag-and-drop-into-slot' solution feels clumsy.

  3. 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

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. Promote 'Recently Added to BrowZine' journals

    A widget to highlight journals newly available through the BrowZine interface would be of interest to our users. It would need to have an institutional filter for subscription titles and would also promote Open Access journals.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Have a simple list of titles as an alternative to the bookshelves which display too little

    The bookshelves for My Library display too few titles - I'd prefer a simple list, which would enable perhaps 25 titles on a screen - the bookshelf display might be suitable for kids but it's not really necessary for Browzine's users.

  12. 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…

  14. 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)

  15. Export bookshelves and article collections

    It would be very useful to be able to export a complete bookshelf or article collection to a list of URL's and to a libguide table.

  17. 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.

  18. Add drag and drop to My Bookshelf within BrowZine on the web

    Add a similar experience that mobile enjoys to the web version of BrowZine to allow users to re-arrange their Bookshelf via a simple drag and drop interface.

  20. Filter to show unread articles only within a Journal

    Toggle for display "All" vs "Unread Only".

    Some journals in BrowZine do not have adequate metadata to put articles in page number order (or they may not have page numbers to begin with!) and so are filed in alphabetical order. For continuously-published titles this means that unread articles may appear in a seemingly random order.

    There is also a scenario where page number/article ID is present but because of a title being continuously published, the new articles appear at the BOTTOM of a potentially very long table of contents making it cumbersome to scroll all the way to the bottom…
