BrowZine: Home

Tablet app for browsing, reading, and monitoring scholarly journals

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine enables you to easily browse, read, organize and keep up-to-date with scientific journals. By providing a simple, uniform index of articles, BrowZine eliminates the differences in the many publishers journal websites. BrowZine is available on your desktop web browser, or your mobile devices (both Apple and Android devices are supported).

Using an intuitive bookshelf metaphor, you are able to keep your must-read journals at your fingertips, even when away from the laboratory.
