BrowZine Features

  1. 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"

  3. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. Add the possibility to open an article from another app (e.g. Feedly) in Android.

    Case in point: I browse headlines from journals through their rss-feeds on Feedly, and would love to be able to open the full text article in Browzine.

    The added benefit of this as opposed to opening it in a browser is the reduced loading time, improved readability, and the built in access through my library's proxy that Browzine offers.

    I see that from Feedly I can 'share' the link to different apps on my tablet, e.g. Gmail, clipboard, etc. It would be great if Browzine could be added to that list, so that the full text could be read from…

  8. 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.

  9. Add built-in auto-read feature

    It would be wonderful to have an auto-read feature built-in the app. This could be used for those interested in an article but have too small a screen, listening to an article while on the road (or wherever), and for BrowZine accessibility for those with poor to minimal eyesight. I think this support facet could greatly increase ‘everyday’ usage of the app.

  10. Allow a user to bulk transfer articles saved in the app

    This would be useful to backup articles found and saved in BrowZine in a service like DropBox, Mendeley or other service.

  11. Eliminate "The" at the beginning of journal titles.

    Some of the titles start with "The" (The Journal of Chemical Physics), so if someone's browsing a shelf for the title they'd have to look in the T's rather than the J's.

  12. Include PubMed IDs and PubMed Central IDs in data sent to ILL and for bibliographic softwoare

    Include PubMed IDs and PubMed Central IDs in the metadata that is sent to the ILL form upon integration. In addition, include PMIDs and PMCIDs with other exports, for example, to bibliographic management software.

  13. 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.

  14. add the ability to create a placeholder for non-BrowZine journals.

    Add a way for users to add a non-BrowZine compatible journal to their bookshelf and link it to the journal website, library A-to-Z list or other location.

  15. Allow a user to mark an issue unread (the system already marks articles unread when a new issue/article comes out)

    It would be useful for a user to mark an issue unread for them to better keep track of issues/articles that they wish to read, whether the issue is new or not. Note that BrowZine already marks new articles/issues unread.

  16. Enable a way to bookmark a spot in a journal

    It can sometimes be useful to not necessarily save a particular article but to bookmark my place when scanning through numerous old issues of a journal so that I can easily pick up where I left off later. Creating a function where I can place this marker on an article within an issue which is easily retrievable from the journal level and that would sync across devices would allow me to easily pick up where I left off, regardless of the device I'm using.

  17. Include abstracts when sharing article citations via email

    Whenever possible, include abstracts when sharing article citations via email; this would make it easier for the recipient to determine if the article is really of interest.

  19. Add Yammer to "Social" options in sharing panel

    Yammer is an enterprise-level Social network tool with Groups functionality. It would be great to be able to share an article found on BrowZine to a group in Yammer, effectively providing a broadcast of an article to an engaged audience. The Yammer icon would ideally be one option in the Social section of the Share window.
