BrowZine - New Article Alerts for Scholarly Journals: Download, Install, Use

To get started with BrowZine:

  1. Download the Browzine app from Apple Store, Google Play, or Amazon Store to your smartphone or tablet. 


    Go to on your web browser.

  2. For Library, select UC San Diego. Off campus, you will be prompted to connect to VPN to see our journal holdings.
  3. Under Settings, you will be prompted to login with your BrowZine account, or sign up if you don't have one. Once logged in, you can begin searching or browsing for journals to add to your bookshelf.

    When there are new articles to read, you'll see a number next to the BrowZine icon on your device (like unread emails) or web account. The number represents the unread articles, not journals or issues. You can then browse the journals with the new issues, and mark them as read. You have to be logged into BrowZine to scan issues and save to "My Articles," but you don't have to be connected to VPN unless you want to read the articles. So you can scan and save articles on your phone, then read them later when you're on your computer.
