Browsing journals and scanning articles is a leading way researchers stay abreast of trends in their field. With the decline of print, databases have become the primary way publishers deliver journals. Databases, however, are designed for searching, not reading. BrowZine unites articles from databases into complete journals, then arranges them by subject on a newsstand, allowing users to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals on the web or their mobile device. Currently, BrowZine works with iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire (based on Android platform), and a web-based version of the application was released in July 2015.
With BrowZine you can:
- Browse all library subscribed content from 2005 to present in leading journals from publishers such as Nature, Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley.
- Save up to 64 journals on a custom book shelf.
- Request notifications whenever new content is released in any journal, much like subscribing to a journal and receiving each new issue in the mail.
Here is a list of all publishers currently compatible with BrowZine:http://support.thirdiron.com/knowledgebase/articles/132654-what-publishers-do-you-support

The FAU Digital Library has made available online the Spring 2016 issues of the Florida Atlantic University Undergraduate Research Journal (FAURJ) and the Undergraduate Law Journal (ULJ) published by undergraduate student clubs at FAU. Both undergraduate journals are peer-reviewed and showcase the research and scholarship of Florida Atlantic University students. Working closely with their mentors and advisers these student clubs provide members with opportunities to participate in editorial and publishing experiences.
The Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (C.S.I.), an FAU student club, works closely with the Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (OURI) to produce the FAU Undergraduate Research Journal (FAURJ). Their goal is to showcase high quality undergraduate research in all fields, supply younger students with an idea of the standard of research, and promote inquiry-based activities at FAU.
The Undergraduate Law Club at FAU is committed to publishing a periodical designed to facilitate, foster, and promote legal education and review. Student club members have a variety of interests in legal affairs ranging from business law to foreign affairs. With the assistance of faculty and advisers the Undergraduate Law Journal (ULJ) has become one of a small number of undergraduate law journals produced nationally.
The Florida Atlantic University Undergraduate Research Journal (FAURJ) and the Undergraduate Law Journal (ULJ) are published open access enabling wide dissemination of FAU’s student scholarship. The Digital Library works with student editors of both clubs to publish their journals online using the Open Journal System (OJS), an open-source software. Visit here to view other open access journals published by the Digital Library.
