What is BrowZine?

Peer-Reviewed Journals in a Browsable Format


Collage of Browzine on multiple devices

BrowZine consolidates thousands of peer-reviewed journals from hundreds of publishers and delivers them to your mobile device or computer. Rather than search databases for specific journal issues, BrowZine creates an experience similar to browsing a newsstand and reading a print journal.

What does it do?

  • No more awkward searching through dozens of databases: Easily read complete scholarly journals in a format that is optimized for tablet devices

  • 24/7 Access to the information that matters to you: Create a personal bookshelf of favorite journals
  • Keep up with the latest research trends: Be alerted when new editions of journals are published-No more clumsy RSS feeds to manage
  • Share links to articles with colleagues or email a link to your lab group on the go
