POPH 5240: Home

This guide is intended for students in Dr. Brandy Burgess' POPH5240 class - Epidemiology.

EndNote @ UGA

EndNote is a citation management tool that allows users to create a library of citation records that are of interest. PDFs and other file attachments can be associated with these citations. Upon installation of EndNote, a toolbar will install in your Microsoft Word. This toolbar links to the EndNote library for pulling both the in-text and bibliographic citation into the document in whatever style is needed for the paper.

To download this desktop application, enter your UGA credentials at this website:

Additional training is available by filling out this form.

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine is a library-subscribed app that lets you read and save many of our scholarly journals in a more visually-appealing interface. BrowZine will alert you when a new issue of a journal is available.

With BrowZine, use your computer, phone or tablet to:
  • Browse through scholarly journals in your field
  • Save key journals or articles to your personal bookshelf
  • Receive alerts when new articles or issues have been published by journals on your bookshelf
  • Save articles for off-line reading; email them to yourself or a colleague; or export to EndNote, Refworks, Zotero, or Mendeley
  • See journal rankings within an academic discipline. Rankings are provided by SCImago Journal Rank and based on the number of citations to the journal and the prestige of those citing journals.

Available journals

BrowZine does not include all the Libraries' subscriptions. Journals included must be scholarly and able to work with BrowZine technology. Only journals that are subscribed to by the UGA Libraries or open access are included. 

Current list of publishers included

To see if a specific title is included, search the web version or download the app to search for it. Don't see your favorite UGA-subscribed journal? BrowZine continues to add new journals. Contact us and we will ask BrowZine to add it.

The fine print: 

BrowZine coverage begins in 2005 or later. To access earlier issues, use the Libraries' Journal Search.

BrowZine is not a tool for searching for articles by subject. Use a GALILEO database or Multi-Search to identify articles on a specific topic.
