What is Browzine for?

It enables users to search for and keep track of journals on particular topics from among the huge number of journals that NHS Open Athens gives you access to.

Search for topics or browse the categories to pick out journals you want to keep up with and save them on an electronic bookshelf that provides easy access to your journals and lets you know when new issues are available.

Easily link to full text of the articles where available.  This depends on what the NHS has paid for – sometimes you’ll only have access to the abstracts of recent issues, although if there’s an article you really want to read, fill in an Article Request from our Forms page & send it to the Library team, who’ll try and track a copy down for you.

How do you get in?

  1. Click on this link to open the Browzine webpage
  2. From the list, choose Doncaster & Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.  If you see the trust automatically displayed as North Lincs & Goole NHS Trust, click on the cog in the top right corner & then the link labelled “Change library”
  3. Search for a journal title, subject area or browse the headings to find journals you’re interested in
  4. Open the journal. If there’s any limit on access  due to the arrangement between the NHS and the publisher, you’ll see it in orange at the top of the screen, and any affected articles/issues will be in grey and have a padlock symbol next to them. Anything in blue should allow you to link to full text (assuming you have an NHS Open Athens account – set one up here

Keeping track of journals

If there are particular journals you’d like to keep track of, you can set up your own bookself:

  1. Find a journal and open it
  2. click “Add to My Bookshelf” (underneath the title)
  3. Sign up for a Browzine account (or log in if you already have one)
  4. The journal is added to your bookshelf.  Use the My Bookshelf button at the top of the screen to edit your bookshelf
  5. Next to each journal you’ll see how many articles have been published since you last looked.

Is there an App?

Yes – it functions in exactly the same way as the desktop version – take your pick which you use.

All you need to do is download the app from wherever you normally get them – Google Play / Apple App Store.
