Your clinicians are always on the move. Between checking on patients, going to meetings, filling out paperwork, and all their other tasks, keeping up with the flood of medical literature relevant to their work is nearly impossible. They need to know when there are important discoveries that redefine best practices in their field.
BrowZine meets your researchers where they are. Researchers enjoy a personalized experience with My Bookshelf. They can follow their favorite journals, receive alerts when new issues are published, and do it all from the web or mobile interface.
Personalized Clinician Experience
All clinicians have titles that they frequently consult to stay up to date in their field. These are often a fraction of the library’s overall holdings. BrowZine makes it easy to build this customized collection with My Bookshelf. Give your researchers one-click access to their favorite titles along with alerting features that notify them when a new issue has been published. BrowZine provides a streamlined current awareness experience that is easy to control.
BrowZine Mobile provides a simple and straightforward way to access articles in a streamlined interface. Users can read PDFs offline, retaining access while on rounds in “wi-fi free” areas of the hospital. They can also easily send documents to popular bibliographic management systems like Endnote, Mendeley, Refworks and Zotero.
BrowZine Mobile syncs seamlessly with browzine.com via the BrowZine Account, making sure that the transition from mobile to desktop to tablet is easy. BrowZine will keep track of which articles they have reviewed and read and saved for later reference as well as update their My Bookshelf area across all their devices.
Turbocharge your A-Z List
Traditional A-Z systems provide an important function in presenting available content to your users. In fact, the knowledge base that powers that A-Z list is the same engine that powers BrowZine. However, BrowZine dramatically improves the experience with a focus on user needs and expectations. We provide a simple, predictive search for looking up titles and journal subject categories from our custom taxonomy of over 1,200 terms, based on Library of Congress subject headings and enhanced with MESH headings for medical subjects. With a single search, users can see matching titles, subjects and even matching journals by ISSN.
Select a title to go straight to the current table of contents. Select a subject to see a graphical representation of your collection in that area. BrowZine supports hundreds of publishers and tens of thousands of titles. Clinicians can rapidly familiarize themselves with your collection and sort titles by Scimago Journal Rank for insights into the top journals in their field.
Curate your collection
BrowZine offers durable linking so that you can guide researchers to journals in specific subject areas. Feature top journals in your LibGuides or subject guides with durable links to the most current issue. Add dynamic content to your guides and web pages with eye-catching, rotating covers of top journals from any subject area you choose. Curate lists of journals to completely customize your users’ experience.
