The Library has recently purchased BrowZine, an app which enables users to browse and read academic journal articles on tablet devices.  

BrowZine brings together articles from our subscription and open access journals into a single ‘newsstand’ style app.   Users can save their favourite journals, view the tables of contents, and read articles as new issues are released.

BrowZine is designed for current awareness and browsing.  It complements the Library catalogue StarPlus, which can be used for more focused research or searching.

University of Sheffield members can download the BrowZine app, free of charge, from the iPad, Android and Amazon App Stores, or from the link below.  After downloading, users will need to select University of Sheffield from the list and enter their University of Sheffield username and password when prompted.

Please note: the minimum OS required are iPad version 5.1.1 and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). BrowZine is currently available for tablets only. It is not compatible with smartphones at present although this development is expected in the future.
