Collaborating with our community to build sustainable publishing and maximize access to critical research
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, BioOne exists for the benefit of our community. As a leading publisher of scientific research, we work to develop economic models and strategic partnerships that balance the needs of all stakeholders and increase the accessibility and integration of content with a global network of scholarly exchange.
Through the success of BioOne’s flagship product, BioOne Complete, BioOne’s community includes more than 150 publishing societies, museums, associations, and independent presses; 3,500 accessing libraries and research organizations; and millions of users worldwide.
BioOne Complete is BioOne’s database of over 200 high quality, subscribed and open access titles focused in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences.
Launched in 2018, the BioOne Ambassador Award recognizes early-career authors in BioOne Complete publications and inspires creative approaches to communicating specialized research to the general public.
Current BioOne publishing partners nominate rising scholars contributing to their journals who meet the following criteria:
- a current graduate student, or within five years of having completed a graduate degree (e.g., Master’s, Ph.D.)
- published an article in an active BioOne Complete journal during the nomination year.
Nominees submit a short response to the question: How does your research change the world? The winning entries highlight the importance of their research at a local or global level, and each receive a $1,000 cash award.
BioOne is honored to showcase the talent of our newest researchers, and we invite you to celebrate with us.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Founded by BioOne and now published by the University of California Press, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene is an open access journal published on a public-good basis.
Assessing Open Archiving Mandates: A Risk Assessment Model for Society Publishers and Substitution Risk Assessment Model
BioOne-commissioned report, developed by Chain Bridge Group, to provide a practical perspective on open-access mandates and an analytic framework for assessing the potential effect of these mandates on subscription revenue. BioOne publishers are invited to work with CBG at no cost to apply this model to their publications. Please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
BioOne’s model publication agreement, developed in consultation with the library community and with the legal assistance of Morrison & Foerster, provides society publishers with a vetted, adaptable, agreement in which copyright remains with the author.
BioOne is a proud participant in Research4Life, a leading philanthropic organization that provides nations in the developing world with access to scholarly content at no cost.
Through Research4Life’s five programs (Hinari, AGORA, OARE, ARDI, and GOALI) BioOne makes its full-text journal aggregation, BioOne Complete, available free of charge to over 2,500 institutions. This benefits the entire scientific community, adds to the visibility and prestige of BioOne’s content, and provides students and researchers in these growing countries with access to critical and current research.
Publishers & PartnersMeeting
From 2010-2015, BioOne held an annual Publishers & Partners Meeting. The meeting provided a free and open forum for discussion among journal publishers, librarians, and leading industry providers, and enjoyed a robust turnout each year. BioOne offered a limited number of travel stipends through its Howard Goldstein Travel Grant Program to help defray the cost of travel. In 2016, BioOne decided to suspend the Publishers & Partners Meeting temporarily in favor of attending more conferences around the world. Our sincere thanks to our generous meeting sponsors, Allen Press, Aries Systems, Atypon, Innodata, and PCG. You can find past presentations here.
