George Mason University Libraries puts the best research at your fingertips and now a new application called BrowZine allows you to...
- Browse much of the online journal collection;
- Read and monitor many of Mason’s scholarly journals;
- Receive content in a format optimized for your iPhone, iPad, Android and other tablets.
Browzine brings journal content together from multiple publishers and platforms, both open-access and subscribed, into a single place where you can save your favorite journals, view the tables of contents, and read or save articles as new issues are released.
Items found in BrowZine can easily be synced up with Zotero, Mendeley, RefWorks, Dropbox or several other services to help keep all of your information together in one place. The list of currently supported publishers is growing.
