BioOne Complete Welcomes Back Popular Titles for 2019

BioOne proudly announces the return of three popular journals and the addition of a new open access title to BioOne Complete for 2019. Re-joining as active participants depositing current content will be Biology of Reproduction, published by the Society for the Study of Reproduction, as well as Journal of Mammalogy and Mammalian Species, published by the American Society of Mammalogists. Freshwater Mollusk Biology and Conservation, published by the Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society, joins the BioOne open access collection.

This wealth of new content adds increased value to the aggregation’s existing 1.5 million-plus pages. Returning titles will fill gaps in their archive, to include all issues from 2000-present. Freshwater Mollusk Biology and Conservation will include issues from 2012-present, and be available in XML for the first time.

With these high-caliber additions, BioOne Complete will offer 208 full-text journals from leading scientific societies and independent presses around the world. 81% of BioOne Complete’s 2019 subscribed titles have Impact Factors, and 29% are based outside the US. Furthermore, two-thirds of current titles are available in full-text XML exclusively through BioOne Complete.

2019 title lists and other librarian resources are available for download on the BioOne Complete website.

BioOne’s goal is to ensure that this will be a seamless and transparent transition for all stakeholder groups. All aggregation content, subscriber licenses, and user profiles are being migrated to the new site. The BioOne team will be in touch throughout the fall with updates, required actions, and educational resources. Please reach out to us if you have questions.

Meet BioOne’s 2018 Ambassadors

BioOne has appointed five Ambassadors among the early career authors of articles published during 2017 in BioOne Complete journals. Representing research conducted in five different countries, on topics ranging from Hawksbill sea turtles to Australian grasses, BioOne recognizes these scientific ambassadors for best communicating their specialized research beyond their immediate discipline and to the public at large. We are pleased to recognize Ben Anderson, Kalhari Bandara Goonewardene, Robbie Hart, Sarah Speck, and Larry Wood for the clarity and creativity of their presentations.

A New Platform for BioOne Complete in January 2019

On August 8, 2018, BioOne announced the forthcoming launch of a new platform for its content aggregation, BioOne Complete. The new website, to launch on January 1, 2019, will be powered by a nonprofit collaboration with SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.

This significant partnership leverages SPIE’s proprietary platform technology to meet the needs of BioOne’s community, including its more than 4,000 accessing libraries worldwide. The new BioOne platform (remaining at bioone.org) will give BioOne Complete a more modern and intuitive look and feel, while enhancing user functionality.

This exciting partnership better positions BioOne for growth in the future, while redirecting a major cost center to a fellow not-for-profit organization. SPIE has already proven to be a responsive and creative collaborator with an appreciation for BioOne’s mission and stakeholder needs. We are excited to share this news, and soon, our new site, with the community.”

Lauren Kane, BioOne Chief Strategy and Operating Officer

Our partnership with BioOne demonstrates the value that compatible, not-for-profit organizations can create when working together. The SPIE mission is better fulfilled with the shared insights and economies of scale created by our relationship with BioOne.”

Scott Ritchey, SPIE Chief Technology Officer

BioOne’s goal is to ensure that this will be a seamless and transparent transition for all stakeholder groups. All aggregation content, subscriber licenses, and user profiles are being migrated to the new site. The BioOne team will be in touch throughout the fall with updates, required actions, and educational resources.
