BrowZine brings the experience of browsing current journal shelves- enjoying the cover art, scanning the table of contents, and reading the full text- to your iPad. This new app from Third Iron allows you to build your own journal browsing shelf from your choice of open access and subscription based journals from a large range of scholarly and scientific publishers. You can set up current awareness notification, and save and download articles to Zotero, Mendeley, Dropbox and other services.
There is a free version of the App that you can use for open access materials, and for a fee, an institution can set up your BrowZine experience to include the journals to which your institution subscribes. Stay tuned for a Dartmouth trial of BrowZine!
