Alerts and relevant suggestions

Researchers, teachers and students responded with enthusiasm to a pilot with Browzine in 2013. Apart from the easy and quick access you can also receive alerts for new editions of your favourite journal(s) and thanks to the digital book shelves you get relevant suggestions for similar journals.

The producer continues to develop the app to add new features. Currently, you have access to the majority of our e-journal collection via Browzine from publishers like Springer, Elsevier, Wiley, and Nature Publishing Group. The number grows continuously because the app producer keeps negotiating contracts with other publishers.
