Trial Access to the BioOne Journals Collection Now through October 31: 176 Titles Available

BioOne, a non-profit collaborative entity founded in 1999 to provide affordable and sustainable access to scientific research, currently offers 176 scholarly journals in the biological sciences produced by 135 nonprofit society and institutional publishers from around the world. 127 of the titles in the collection are ranked by the Institute for Scientific Information (now Thomson ISI) for quality. Subject areas covered by BioOne journals include organismal biology, ecology, zoology, and environmental science, plus a wide array of sub-disciplines.

The BioOne online platform supports browsing and searching, full-text articles in both PDF and HTML format, alerts for saved searches and tables of contents, RSS feeds, a current display of the most-read and most-cited articles for each journal, and other useful features.

The Cheng Library is offering trial access to the complete collection of BioOne journals through October 31, and faculty and students are invited to use it and let us know what you think. To help you get acquainted with the database, BioOne offers a one-page Quick Start Guide (in PDF) and a brief three-minute video tutorial on searching and browsing. Links to articles in BioOne will also be accessible through our science databases, including Scopus and Biological Abstracts.
