What it is:
BrowZine is an app that lets you add scholarly journals to a newsstand on your iPad or other table. Browse and read current and recent journal issues from many different publishers and database platforms; receive new issues as they are published. You can even save articles to read later.

As its name suggests, BrowZine is designed for browsing journals and issues; it is ideal for journals that you read regularly or for subject areas that you want to track. It is not designed for in-depth research, however, and is not a search tool. If you need to search for articles on a specific topic, we recommend the databases listed on our various Research Guides.

Need to view back issues?
BrowZine contains current and recent issues, but it does not include every back issue. To browse back issues, search for the journal in the Periodical Title List and navigate to the journal's page.


Publishers currently supported

While many journals are available in BrowZine -- including titles published by AAAS, ACS, AIP, APS, ASM, Brill, Cambridge University Press, Elsevier, IOP, Nature, Oxford University Press, Project Muse, RSC, Sage, SIAM, Springer, Taylor and Francis, and Wiley -- not all are. BrowZine is adding more publishers all the time. The current list is below.
