BrowZine – a new way to stay up-to-date with articles

BrowZine delivers thousands of academic journals to your smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop It works by organising journal articles and arranging these journals on a common newsstand. The result is a comfortable and easy way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals across multiple disciplines.

Don’t believe us? Well, it’s not just us here in the Library who think this is a great way to access new content. Read the below from Dr Ekaterina Kozina, a Research Projects Officer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery…

The Library’s new e-journal mobile app BrowZine has made accessing TCD’s academic electronic journals significantly easier. I have been recommending it to the researchers in the School of Nursing and Midwifery since it was launched last year.

What works great with BrowZine is the grouping together of all academic journals for a given subject that TCD have access to, something not so easy to do with the Stella catalogue.

I can browse all 101 Nursing journals or can narrow down to say the 10 Midwifery journals.

This is a great tool for staying current with developments in a field, and for making serendipitous finds while browsing the contents of the latest journals.

Articles can be read online or downloaded for reading later. BrowZine works well with all the major reference management packages (EndNote, Zotero, Mendeley) allowing researchers to easily save article citations while on the go. I use the browser version while working at my desktop and the smartphone app (downloaded from Google Play Store) while on the move.

Definitely an app to help students and researchers alike!
