New Article Alert For Scholarly Journals

BrowZine is a current awareness service to help you keep up with the latest research in your field. You can use it on the web, through a mobile app, or both as it syncs your account across all devices. It's available to all faculty, staff, and students.

You can:

  • Create a customized list of your favorite scholarly, peer-reviewed journals (64 max), which you can access on the web and mobile devices. This includes journals in all disciplines, from hundreds of publishers for which the library has a direct subscription as well as open access journals.
  • Check in periodically to see if new articles have been published. On your mobile device, you'll get a notification with the number of new articles.  
  • Browse the articles for ones you want to read, or download to read later.
  • Create and organize lists of articles ("My Articles") for easy retrieval. This is a great way to save articles for later reading if you like to scan for articles on your phone but prefer to read them on your tablet or computer.
  • Share links to articles, or export references into bibliographic management software.

To get started, search for BrowZine in your device’s app store, download the free app, and then select Albert Einstein College of Medicine from the list of institutions.
