BrowZine: BrowZine

Describes the BrowZine app and e-journal service.

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine works by organizing the articles found in the SU Library subscription databases, uniting them into complete journals, then arranging these journals on a common newsstand.  The result is an easy and familiar way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals across the disciplines.

BrowZine can accessed in two ways.  The first is with a free app from your mobile device. The second method is BrowZine Web, which provides access on your desktop computer or laptop. Use the "My Bookshelf" feature to select journal content and be notified when new articles are published.  This feature can be synced across your devices.

What journals are included?

Not all publishers are participating in this project, but the list continues to grow.  About 6,000 of our peer-reviewed scholarly journal titles are included for now.  For a current list of publishers supporting Browzine, go to the Browzine/ThirdIron website.
