Third Iron is an industry-leading library technology company and BrowZine is our first product. Being able to browse journals is a leading way researchers stay current in their field. But, as most journals are now delivered in article-level databases, this experience has largely been lost. At best, people must use A-Z lists or sign up for RSS or other clunky technologies to find journals and stay on top of new issues, experiences that are nothing like reading a journal.
BrowZine is different. Designed for tablet devices, BrowZine works with a library’s existing journal databases to recombine articles back into full journals, then arranges them on a subject-based newsstand. The result is a terrific new way for people to find journals, easily read articles, and follow titles of interest. All in a format optimized for tablet devices. For the first times, patrons and can see the thousands of titles available from publishers like ACS, Elsevier, Emerald, Sage, Wiley and more, and read them as journals.
