Rights and Permissions
Who holds the copyright of the material in BioOne Complete?
BioOne Complete includes over 200 independently published scientific journals. BioOne holds a non-exclusive license to publish content on behalf of its participants, but is not the copyright holder or owner of any journals included in BioOne Complete. Each publication is owned by a nonprofit society, institution, or press that determines its own editorial strategy and re-use guidelines. For this reason, BioOne cannot stipulate any blanket re-use policies, to include author archiving. Each primary publisher determines their organizational policies independently. Contact details for individual publications are available in each journal's Editorial Office tab.
How do I obtain the rights to an item/article?
Many titles in BioOne Complete use the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) and their RightsLink service to manage reuse and reproduction requests. Participating publications include a Rights & Permissions link in the right sidebar on the article page.
Rights requests for titles not participating in CCC’s licensing and permissions services should be sent to the respective publication’s editorial office. Contact details for individual publications are available in each journal’s Editorial Office tab.
Please note that BioOne is not the copyright holder or owner of any title included in the aggregation. Each publication is owned and operated by an affiliated publishing society or nonprofit organization, as indicated in the list of publishers.
