An innovative non-profit collaborative
Supporting sustainable scholarly communications since 1999.
BioOne was founded in 1999 by both library and publisher interests to address the inequities posed by commercial journal publishing. Two decades later, BioOne remains committed to meeting library, publisher, and researcher needs through a growing portfolio of products and services.
BioOne Complete, BioOne’s flagship product, is a database of over 200 subscribed and open access titles in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences.
BioOne Complete provides libraries with cost-effective access to high-quality, curated research and independent society publishers with a dynamic, community-based platform and global distribution. BioOne Complete’s unique business model reinvests precious library funds in scientific communication, with over $67 million returned to BioOne society publishers to date.
