BrowZine: Information & Instructions

It's challenging to stay up-to-date in current medical literature; there's not enough time in the day, and there's an onslaught of information available to you. 

How is one to manage the deluge of information? Use BrowZine to get easy access to the journals that matter to you. With BrowZine, you can scan the most recent tables of content for your preferred journals, and if an article looks interesting, save it to your account to read at a later time. 

Browse Journals Using BrowZine

On your computer or laptop, use the BrowZine website to search our journal collection by title, subject, or ISSN. If you are on a mobile device, you will be prompted to download the free app through the App Store or Google Play. 

On the web version of BrowZine, you can add journals to your bookshelf after you login to your account.


CHW and Froedtert employees - please note that you will need an MCW Libraries off-campus, proxy access account in order to sign up for BrowZine. Apply for an account in person at the Todd Wehr or Froedtert libraries, or complete the Proxy Access Request form.

What is BrowZine?

What you CAN find in BrowZine:

  • Tables of contents from recent issues of scholarly journals from supported publishers.

What you CANNOT find in BrowZine:

  • Older issues of journals, even if MCW Libraries has a subscription. Only journal issues from 2005 and newer are available via BrowZine. Search the MCW Libraries' E-journals List if you need something that's older.
  • Non-journal publications such as newspapers, popular magazines, and books.
  • Article searching, author name searching, and other search tools used to find articles within journals. You must search for the journal title and then browse to the issue you need if you want to find a specific article.
