What is BrowZine?

  • BrowZine allows you to browse scholarly journals available from the UCLA Library or from open sources on your tablet, iPhone or Android smartphone. There is also a web version.
  • Access thousands of scholarly journals anywhere you have WiFi access.
  • View complete issues of journals including the table of contents.
  • Create a personal library of up to 64 favorite journals for easy access on your BrowZine interface.
  • Be alerted when a new issue of a journal is published.
  • Save articles on your mobile device to read later even when you are off line.
  • Download BrowZine articles to Dropbox, Mendeley, Zotero, and other services to help keep all of your information together in one place.

Why use BrowZine?

  • Keep up to date on current research in your discipline without having to carry around paper journals or track publications individually online.
  • Get an overview of current research available in the journal format including articles you might miss using a focused online search.
  • Enjoy the freedom of access to scholarly journals on a mobile device.

When to use other resources:

  • When you want to do in depth research. The BrowZine interface only displays recent issues of journals and it does not include a function for searching within or across journals.
  • When an online scholarly journal is not yet accessible via BrowZine. BrowZine currently has agreements with a wide range of scholarly publishers but not necessarily all that provide journals available online at UCLA.
  • When you want to do light reading. BrowZine only includes scholarly journals and not popular magazines or newspapers.
  • When a journal is not yet available in an online format. Many disciplines have publications that are only available in print.
