Introducing BrowZine

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine works by consolidating academic journals from multiple publishers in the GSU Library collection into an easily browsable newsstand format for your mobile device or web browser.

  • Customize your personal bookshelf with journals you want to track.
  • Browse tables of contents and be alerted to new issues.
  • Easily read recent articles or full journal issues.
  • Sync settings/journals between your tablet and phone.
  • Download and save articles for offline reading.

As its name suggests, BrowZine is designed for browsing recent scholarship in journals you read regularly or in tracking specific subject areas.  Older backfiles (pre-2005) are not generally available within this service.  For more in-depth research or to find articles on a specific topic, we recommend subject specific databases or Discover search.  For access to the library's full range of back issues, please search our Journal List.

Simply create a free BrowZine account on each device, and your journals and article notifications will be synced.

What Journals are Included?

Most of the scholarly journals to which the library directly subscribes are included in BrowZine. Newspapers, aggregator content, trade journals, and popular journals are outside the scope of the BrowZine project, and are therefore excluded.  Here is a growing list of participating publishers.
