Joining BioOne Complete as open-access participants will be: Paleontological Contributions, published by The Paleontological Institute at The University of Kansas; and Palaeodiversity and Stuttgarter Beiträge zur Naturkunde A, both published by The Stuttgart State Museum of Natural History, Germany.

These titles' collective backfile encompasses 48 years and more than 12,000 new pages for BioOne Complete. In 2016, the aggregation will be home to 191 publications (130 current, 43 backfile-only, and 18 open-access titles), comprising more than 1.2 million pages and growing daily.

Some 78 per cent of BioOne Complete’s subscribed titles are ranked in Thomson Reuters’ Journal Citation Reports, and 25 per cent are based outside of the USA. Some 73 per cent of current titles are available in full-text XML exclusively through BioOne Complete.

Keith S. Summerville, editor of Journal of the Lepidopterists’ Society, commented: 'The Journal of the Lepidopterists’ Society is committed to publishing high-quality research involving all aspects of the science of butterflies and moths. The society is honoured and excited to become part of the BioOne community. This partnership promises to significantly improve access to the Journal’s content and will enhance the society’s efforts to engage scholars with cutting edge research involving the insect order Lepidoptera.'
