The October issue of the Charleston Advisor contains a very thorough review of BrowZine by Vera Lux at Bowling Green State University where the service was rated a composite score of 4 of 5 stars!
From the review:
With the ever-increasing transition to electronic-only journal hold- ings and full text databases, the ability to browse academic journals has become more difficult. BrowZine aims to restore this ability to scholars by leveraging the power and popularity of tablet devices. The product excels in its primary purpose. Interacting with a jour- nal in the application provides an experience much closer to that of holding a print journal than what is possible via journal Web pages or databases. This allows users to regain the sense of context provided by viewing a journal holistically, particularly with the inclusion of front and back matter when available. BrowZine allows users to by- pass multiple library pages and authentication procedures to browse and access journal content quickly and effectively.
