BioOneTM (http://www.BioOne.org), a unique Web-based aggregation of research in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences, have announced the addition of six additional highly-cited, peer-reviewed journals to the BioOne database.
Effective immediately, BioOne is pleased to announce the addition of the following titles and publishers:
The Biology of Reproduction, published by the Society for the Study of Reproduction – Founded in 1967, this publisher promotes the study of reproduction by fostering interdisciplinary communication among scientists, holding conferences, and meritorious studies. The journal presents research on a broad range of material in the field of reproductive biology, as well as minireviews on topics of current importance or controversy.
Bios, published by the Tri Beta Society – Beta Beta Beta (Tri Beta) is a society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to understanding biological study through scientific research. Bios is a forum for Tri Beta Society undergraduate members to publish their research.
Journal of Arachnology, published by the American Arachnological Society (AAS) – Founded in 1972, AAS promotes the study of arachnids, and promotes cooperative learning between amateur and professional arachnologists. The journal is published three times a year.
Journal of the New York Entomological Society, published by the New York Entomological Society – Originally created by a small group of insect collectors and naturalists in 1892 who met in the parlor of one member’s home, the New York Entomological Society published their journal’s first issue in 1893. Although it deals with many aspects of entomology, the subject matter is of a systematic or taxonomic nature, including biology and ecology. Occasionally, editors put out special editions to include specific themes or honor certain entomologists.
PALAIOS, published by the Society for Sedimentary Geology – PALAIOS emphasizes the impact of life on the earth’s history and is devoted to the application of paleontology in solving geological problems in a broad spectrum of subdisciplines, including stratigraphy, sedimentology, paleogeography, paleoecology, and paleobiology.
Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences, published by the Academy of Natural Sciences – The publisher, an international museum of natural history operating since 1812, undertakes research and public education that focuses on the environment and its diverse species. The journal has been continuously published since 1812.
“We are very pleased to be able to announce this expansion in content, and are particularly gratified that we are able to offer access to these titles to our early library subscribers at no additional cost,” said Heather Joseph, Chief Operating Officer of BioOne. “We continue to be committed to developing this aggregation in a way that meets the needs of both the research and library communities.”
BioOneTM is a Web-based aggregation of research in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences. It is being developed by the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS), SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), the University of Kansas, the Big 12 Plus Libraries Consortium, and Allen Press. When launched in 2001, BioOne will offer a broad selection of the journals of many AIBS member societies.
