Celebrating the Power of Community
Dear BioOne Community,
Strength in the aggregate is at the very core of BioOne’s model and mission. The recognition that more could be achieved together than apart was at the center of BioOne’s founding principles in 1999 – and remains just as true and relevant today.
Over the past two decades, BioOne has returned more than $63 million in royalty sharing back to its publishing partners. This has been achieved while keeping prices affordable for institutional subscribers, with a per title cost that is 94% less than the commercial average. We also continue to explore ways to offer sustainable open access pathways for our partners, guided by our mission to maximize access to critical scientific research.
This progress is made possible by the strength of the BioOne community – more than 150 society and independent presses; 3,500 accessing institutions; millions of researchers and readers; and the countless individuals and partnering organizations who have inspired, advised, and supported BioOne since its launch.
BioOne Complete publishing authors are also key contributors to BioOne’s impact. The BioOne Ambassador Award, now in its fifth year, recognizes five early-career researchers for their clarity and creativity in communicating specialized research. Read more about these exceptional individuals in the Publishing Highlights section and join me in celebrating their contributions to the BioOne community.

2022 BioOne Ambassador Award Winners Announced
BioOne recently announced the winners of the 2022 BioOne Ambassador Award. Now in its fifth year, this prestigious award recognizes early-career authors who excel in the communication of their research to the general public. Authors are nominated by BioOne publishing partners, and submit a response to the prompt of “how does your research change the world?
“The BioOne Ambassador Award is so important because it recognizes communication as an integral part of science,” said Dr. Debra Bourne, Editor-in-Chief at the Journal of Wildlife Diseases. “By celebrating excellent science communication efforts among early career researchers, the Award is driving a sea change not just in how science is perceived by the public but how communication skill sets are viewed by scientists.”
BioOne congratulates the winners for their clarity and creativity in communicating their specialized research. We invite you to read their exemplary submissions in our award showcase.
Mountain Voices with the International Mountain Society
Sarah-Lan Mathez-Stiefel, Associate Editor of the interdisciplinary Mountain Research and Development, recently joined Carol Borrmann-Begg, BioOne’s Publisher Relations Associate, for a wide-ranging interview on the journal’s evolution. In this lively discussion, we hear about the journal’s upcoming focus issue on indigenous knowledge collaborations, and how the research community can find innovative solutions to the issues facing mountain areas when understood from a diverse set of perspectives.
Mathez-Stiefel also introduces “MRD Talks,” a new space within the journal for debates among researchers, policymakers, and practitioners. Finally, the pair discuss Mountain Research and Development’s experience in transitioning from a subscribed to fully Open Access model, with considerations for other publications exploring their OA options.
