What is BrowZine?

BrowZine is a tool which allows you to easily browse, read, and keep up-to-date with current scholarly journal content on any device.  The desktop version of BrowZine is fully integrated with LibrarySearch to enhance your journal browsing experience and it is also available as a free app.  It works by bringing together high-quality current titles from the Library's journal subscriptions with Open Access titles into a streamlined platform.  You can browse by subject, search by title, view tables of contents, read articles and much more!  You can create a personal account in order to add your favourite journals to your Bookshelf and save articles to read later. 

BrowZine is a great way to browse journals and keep up-to-date with new research in your area of study.  It is not designed for article searching so you should still go to LibrarySearch when you want to search for content.

What are the main features of BrowZine?

  • Browse journals by subject or search by title or ISSN
  • Easily browse current table of contents and back issues of top scholarly journals (as BrowZine is designed for current awareness, content goes back to 2005 on this platform only.  Don't worry, you can still search and read any pre-2005 content via LibrarySearch and the publisher platform)
  • Save your favourite journals to your Bookshelf and save articles for later (*sign up to a free personal account is required to make use of this functionality)
  • Access your favourite journals from a single, streamlined platform on any device and via LibrarySearch
  • Share articles and export citations
