BrowZine Features

  1. Include basic PDF markup capabilities in Browzine

    It'd be great to be able to do basic markup in the PDF view in Browzine—even just highlighting would be fantastic. A lot of academics like to mark up PDFs while reading and then store the marked-up version in a Zotero or Mendeley library. Browzine is fantastic at retrieving and then uploading to a personal library, but the middle markup step is missing. I used to be able to make it work with Papership or Zotfile, both of which are now defunct. I can export to iAnnotate or some other annotation app, but I can't then get it into Zotero…

  2. 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.

  5. Provide the month and page numbers for journal articles. I usually search by month, not issue number.

    Please include the month and page numbers for articles in the Available Issues dropdown. It is difficult to search for articles by journal issue number. Most MDs I know refer to an article by the month it was published in a particular journal - eg - "the December issue of JCO." It is tedious opening and closing each issue of a journal to find one particular article that I am look for.
    Thanks

  6. Allow for custom upload of dummies to represent titles the library subscribe to, but are not available yet via Browzine

    While we know that Browzine could link back to the A-Z list if a user searched for title that's not available in Browzine, we are concerned that actual browsing could be misleading, because users might think this is all that's available and not put in a search. We'd like to have a way to represent ALL of our holdings - including titles Browzine does not offer. If there is a way to custom create dummies by uploading a list, that would resolve the problem, even if they are not as pretty and reflect the actual journal cover.

  7. 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.

  8. Change system message when there's no match for a title or the title has no ISSN

    If I search for a title in any of these categories

    * Not included in our BrowZine instance
    * Not included in our OCLC A-Z list
    * Does not have an ISSN

    I receive this message:

    "No matches for <title>. 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."

    I would like for it to read:

    "No matches for <title>. Please click here to search for the title in your library's journals list."

    Please either change the message globally or allow customization…

  9. Saving to My Articles could be more intuitive

    When adding an article to "My Articles" I was given the choice of "General collection" or "Create a new collection" in the pop-up box. I clicked the check-mark next to General Collection and clicked done, and the article didn't save to my articles. Turns out by clicking the checkmark I'd un-checked it meaning there was no collection selected to save it to, so it didn't save. It shouldn't have let me do this and/or should have warned me.

  10. Filter Out "Accepted Manuscripts" from BrowZine until there is actual content available

    Some publishers like Oxford and IEEE sometimes produce an "article in press" which does not lead to full text since the publisher has not yet posted the document. Suppress these items from BrowZine, if possible, so that users being alerted about their existence don't waste time chasing items not yet available.

  11. unread

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

    For some journals (e.g. Open Access journals like eLife or the Frontiers journals), the number of articles per issue can get huge, and BrowZine appears to sort them alphabetically by title. This can make finding the unread articles (with a blue dot) time consuming. It would be easier if it were possible to toggle between displaying only unread articles vs all articles.

  12. 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.

  14. F1000Workspace functionality (like Mendeley and Zotero)

    F1000Workspace (from F1000.com), which is a citation manager like Zotero and Mendeley. Our users prefer it and would like Browzine to work with it.

  15. 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.

  17. 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"

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
