Atkins Library is sponsoring BrowZine, a new application that allows you to browse, read and monitor many of the library’s scholarly journals - all in a format optimized for your iPad, iPhone or Android tablet and phone. You can also access BrowZine on the web, and sync your account across all platforms. A link to BrowZine Web is accessible from the Databases tab on the library website.
BrowZine delivers top journals from publishers like Oxford, SAGE, Springer, Wiley and Elsevier and many more. With BrowZine, you can:
Browse and read journals by subject, easily review tables of contents, and download full articles.
Create your own bookshelf and be notified when new articles in your field of interest are published.
Save articles for off-line reading or export to services such as DropBox, Mendeley, EndNote, RefWorks, Zotero, Papers and more.
You can now access journals and journal content from BrowZine directly through the library catalog.
To get started with BrowZine from your desktop or laptop computer, simply go to http://browzine.com. To access BrowZine from your smartphone or tablet, download the BrowZine app from the appropriate app store.
When initially launching BrowZine, select “University of North Carolina – Charlotte” from the drop down list. Enter your UNC Charlotte login and password and then start exploring.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
Abstracts - You will begin to see Abstracts in BrowZine when you preview journal articles. PubMed abstracts have been added and more publishers and vendors will hopefully be working with BrowZine in the next year to integrate abstracts for other publications.
Download PDF - BrowZine Web links to full text now include “Download PDF”. That will save you several clicks, making it even easier to access the content in BrowZine that interests you.
Previous/Next - The BrowZine app now include a previous/next button when you are looking at an article in the app. This mimics the experience that you might have flipping from one article to the next when browsing a print issue of a journal.
