Please note BrowZine does not host or publish content.
The library's journal collection is presented in a unified and normalised way across different publishers, allowing users to quickly and easily find and connect to relevant journals. Users are also alerted to new content as it is released in the journals that they select as favourites and these unread article alerts are synced across the user's BrowZine instances on web and iOS and Android mobile devices. BrowZine utilises Knowledge Base Link Technology to directly link your users to the selected journal content and integrates with your remote authentication to allow users to access the library's journals collection anywhere, anytime.
BrowZine provides a number of opportunities for libraries to integrate within their existing websites. Durable links for subjects and specific journal titles enable simple linking to content, and widgets and templates for LibGuides offers a more discipline-specific approach. In addition, API options make BrowZine technology easy to integrate in more seamless way with search and discovery facilities. Collectively, these various options ensure that the right journal engagement experience can easily be provided to your users. Additionally, free training and consultation is provided by BrowZine's all-librarian outreach staff to ensure Institutions make the most of the BrowZine service.
The list of BrowZine-supported publishers continues to grow and is posted online. It includes large STM publishers, such as American Chemical Society, Elsevier, Wiley and Springer amongst others.
