BrowZine for LUT & LAB
BrowZine helps you to follow academic journal titles of interest and be notified when new articles are published.

Articles in Press
Many publishers make articles available before they are formally published in a journal volume and issue. BrowZine makes these articles easily accessible in our Articles in Press section.
In BrowZine Web, Articles in Press appears on the left, just below the journal cover image. In the mobile apps, select a journal and then tap Available Issues to see Articles in Press.
The article alert feature of My Bookshelf includes Articles in Press, ensuring you are notified of all the new research as soon as it is made available. Once you mark an Article in Press article as "read" it stays that way, so you are not notified twice when the article makes its way to a formal issue.
BrowZine app is available for both IoS and Android devices. Refer to this page for more information on how to download the app to your mobile / tablet devices.

When to use other resources
When to use other resources
- When you want to do in depth research. The BrowZine interface only displays recent issues of journals and it does not include a function for searching within or across journals.
- When an online scholarly journal is not yet accessible via BrowZine. BrowZine currently has agreements with a wide range of scholarly publishers but not necessarily all that provide journals available online at LUT or LAB.
- When you want to do light reading. BrowZine only includes scholarly journals and not popular magazines or newspapers.
- When a journal is not yet available in an online format. Many disciplines have publications that are only available in print.
- When you are looking for articles in Finnish language.
