BrowZine New Journal Issues - Trial Access


BrowZine delivers thousands of academic journals to your iPad, with Android support coming soon.

BrowZine works by organizing the articles found in Open Access and journal subscription databases, uniting them into complete journals, then arranging these journals on a common newsstand. The result is an easy and familiar way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals across the disciplines. Selected journals we have on campus are part of BrowZine's collection. Publishers who have content in BrowZine include ACS, ACM, Elsevier, IEEE, Nature Publishing, Springer, SAGE, and Wiley.

Getting Started:

1. *FIRST* make sure your iPad is set up with the proxy system: Connect from Off-Campus With Your iPad or iPhone (Tip: Do not run the BrowZine app while you do this set up.) You must add the proxy URL to your iPad before being able to use BrowZine from on-campus or off-campus.
