BioOne Complete™
BioOne Complete is BioOne's aggregation of more than 180 high quality, subscribed and open-access titles focused in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences.  For subscribing libaries, BioOne Complete offers a cost-effective, curated collection of independently-published journals. Nearly three-quarters of the aggregation's titles are ranked by Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Reports, and 45% are available online exclusively through BioOne participation.

Since 2001, BioOne has returned over 27 million dollars to its nonprofit publishers, helping them remain financially sustainable and editorially independent.
