Removing Barriers to International Journal Submissions: BioOne partners with Charlesworth

As the editor of a BioOne Complete publication, how do you deal with submissions that could be improved with better English? Do you return them to the author for correction, edit them in-house, or reluctantly reject them outright?

The rapid expansion of the global research community, with its exponential growth in submissions from non-native English-speaking authors, can pose a major challenge to editors who want to be inclusive and ensure the optimal communication of valuable scholarship. Excellent research knows no boundaries, and we want to help ensure that it finds a home in your journals.

BioOne has partnered with Charlesworth Author Services to offer a discount on English-language editing and manuscript preparation services. Charlesworth Author Services provides non-native English speakers access to such essential tools as translation, proofreading, and style checking. Not only do these services enhance the submissions you receive, they can save time for your editors and reviewers. We encourage BioOne Complete editors and societies to add this special referral link to your author submission guidelines and to share the link with authors.

Charlesworth Author Services is the latest addition to BioOne’s growing program of options designed to help our society publishers meet the needs of their global scientific communities. See the Publisher Resources page for details on these additional benefits.

  • • Post an unlimited number of positions to the BioOne Career Center free of charge, including volunteer positions, internships, and fellowships. List this link as a career resource for your members.
  • • Consider the issue-in-progress workflow available to all active publishers at no cost.
  • • Provide your society members with access to their publications through a secure Member Access link for free.
  • • Take advantage of the Copyright Clearance Center's online RightsLink service. BioOne provides this option to all publications at no cost to manage the rights and permissions of your content.
We are always open to considering suggestions for other services. Please contact BioOne’s Publisher Relations Associate Alexandra Frankel (Alexandra@bioone.org) with questions or ideas for additional ways we can support you.


High quality science is being conducted around the globe, and trends show research output increasing from China and emerging regions. With submissions from non-native English speakers continuing to rise, language-polishing services remove a potential barrier to sharing that research. BioOne is proud to serve an international community of publishers, and disseminates research via libraries and partnerships in every region. It is our hope that with this new endeavor, even more top-tier research will find its way into your publications.

"BioOne Complete offers the ability to acquire quality titles which would otherwise be difficult to get. [It] provides a cost-effective way to subscribe to bioscience titles and being well below the average inter- library loan cost, is very positive. If universities are looking for biology packages, then yes, I would recommend BioOne Complete."

"Prior to acquiring BioOne Complete, we had some difficulties acquiring some specific journals as they were expensive. BioOne Complete enabled us to consolidate our holdings, providing access to many unique titles which are part of such a great collection. This also meant cost savings for the university."
