| No Comments

BioOne is home to 113 not-for-profit society and institutional publishers from around the world.” “Bringing together a wide range of work on the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences from scientific societies, libraries, academe, and the private sector, the new platform had to be capable of supporting multiple product types. The BioOne site hosts full-text HTML journal and book content fully integrated on the one site. This benefits the user by providing a consistent user experience and single sign on irrespective of the content they are seeking. BioOne benefits by being able to deliver book and journal content together, or separately, from a single platform, and being able to manage the site using a single administration tool from the desktop.” Source: Knowledgespeak Newsletter
