Public Release:  BioOne announces 2015 title additions

BioOne

WASHINGTON, DC--BioOne welcomes five new journals to BioOne Complete, its online aggregation of independently-published, subscribed and open-access titles. Joining the aggregation in January 2015 will be: Ameghiniana, published by the Argentine Paleontological Association; Candollea, published by the Conservatory and Botanical Garden of the City of Geneva, Switzerland; Journal of Wildlife Diseases, published by the Wildlife Disease Association; Polish Journal of Ecology, published by the Museum and Institute of Zoology, Polish Academy of Sciences; and Willdenowia, published by the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem, Germany.

Each journal is a leader in its field and is ranked in Thomson Reuters' 2014 Journal Citation Reports®, thus enhancing the value of a BioOne Complete subscription for BioOne's subscribers worldwide. BioOne participation likewise represents a key step forward for each of these nonprofit publishers by making their content more accessible to a global audience. Four of these five new titles have previously been unavailable in full-text XML.

"Ameghiniana, published by the Argentine Paleontological Association since 1957, has recently introduced changes that aim to position it as a leading paleontological journal focused on Gondwana and the southern hemisphere," commented Diego Pol, Director of Ameghiniana. He also noted that, "after expanding our editorial board and reducing our publication time, our next goal was to achieve a broad distribution online to institutions around the globe. BioOne was the perfect way to achieve this goal while keeping the Association's mission intact."

In 2015, BioOne Complete will be home to 184 total publications. Of this total, 74% are JCR-ranked, 25% are based outside of the US, and 45% are available online exclusively through the BioOne aggregation. For subscription or free trial information, please contact your local BioOne agent.
