Selection Criteria and Evaluation Process


Inclusion in BioOne Complete is competitive, and BioOne adds only a few new subscribed titles each year. This measured growth strategy ensures a high-quality aggregation that will be attractive to subscribers, and that participants receive a stable and sustainable revenue stream.

BioOne offers a single, transparent, and non-exclusive license for participants. Titles must be peer-reviewed and focused in the biological, ecological, or environmental sciences, and publishers must submit current, full-text content that is predominantly published in English. We require the submission of current content at the time of publication, and cannot accommodate requests for embargoes or indexing-only arrangements.
