Share this on social media:

BioOne has formed partnerships with Canadian Science Publishing, CSIRO Publishing of Australia, and the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature.

The deals will add nine journals to BioOne Complete in 2017, meaning it now includes 200 high impact titles from leading nonprofit scientific publishers around the world.

Joining BioOne Complete in January 2017 will be: The Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, published by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature and available electronically for the first time through BioOne; Canadian Journal of Animal Science, Canadian Journal of Plant Science, and Canadian Journal of Soil Science, published by Canadian Science Publishing; and Australian Journal of Zoology, Australian Systematic Botany, Crop and Pasture Science, Invertebrate Systematics, and Wildlife Research, published by CSIRO Publishing.

The backfile of these nine titles encompasses more than 40,000 new pages for BioOne Complete, adding to the aggregation’s existing 1.3 million pages.

Andrew Stammer, director of CSIRO Publishing, said: 'The team at CSIRO Publishing is very pleased to be working with BioOne. We’ve been connecting scientists with their readers since 1948 and the development of digital publishing has allowed us to extend our global reach. But there is more we can do. So we’re taking the lead from our authors, who are increasingly collaborating with each other with exciting results.

'We have entered into a collaboration with BioOne that we expect to take a selection of our relevant science to new readers around the world. BioOne is an obvious choice for us. Their subject focus, especially in systematics, fits our titles. And our not-for-profit status is a good cultural fit with BioOne.'

Susi Skomal, BioOne president/CEO, added: 'Adding new content to the collection is a pleasure each year, and 2017 marks a special occasion. Not only are we celebrating the milestone of 200 titles, we do so with three outstanding collaborative partnerships that expand BioOne Complete’s depth and resonance with its global audience.'
