BioOne Online Journals

Resource Type: 

BioOne is a global, not-for-profit collaboration bringing together scientific societies, publishers, and libraries to provide access to critical, peer-reviewed research in the biological, ecological, and environmental science. For its users—students, researchers, and unaffiliated individuals—BioOne provides a unique aggregation of high-impact bioscience research journals, featuring timely content on a wide-array of today’s most pressing topics.

BioOne.1  includes about 100 high-impact publications, providing the scholarly community with a must-have collection of critical, high-quality titles across the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences. 84% of BioOne.1's titles are ISI ranked, and many titles are considered leaders in their respective fields.

Open access, freely available content is an important part of BioOne's—and the scholarly enterprise's—core mission. The BioOne Open Access Collection now includes ten titles, including five publications from Conservation International and the American Society of Plant Biologists' innovative online reference work, The Arabidopsis Book.  All open access content is freely available to all users, regardless of BioOne subscription.

Click on "Browse" to see a browseable list of individual e-journals.  We subscribe to ONLY the BioOne.1 titles.


The journals are also searchable through Scholars Portal Journals.

Mobile App

BioOne Mobile is an optimized website now available to smartphone users. With this new mobile interface, all content from BioOne's journals and book series is available for easy access to faculty, students, and researchers via their iPhone, Android, and Blackberry smartphones.

Because BioOne's optimization is site-wide, there is no app to download or keep updated. Instead, users will be automatically directed to BioOne's mobile site whenever they access from a compatible mobile device. Users accessing the site from an iPad or tablet are shown the full site for optimal viewing, but can select the mobile site if they prefer.

Just as on the full BioOne site, users are able to access abstracts and the full text of open access articles without a subscription. Users can also access their account profiles; execute complex searches, sorting by most-recent, most-downloaded, or most-cited articles; and save PDFs for future access.

Pairing Your Device

Users associated with an institutional subscription (e.g.Trent users) can easily pair their device with their university's access privileges, giving them access to all subscribed content, whether they are in the library or on-the-go. Pairing lasts for 90 days, after which you must pair it again.

Your device is automatically paired when you visit the site from airTrent or when you use a link from the library website.

To manually pair your device from off-campus:

  • On a computer, obtain a code here.
  • On your device, go to the website and tap the settings icon.
  • Tap "Device Pairing".
  • Enter the code.

See the .pdf file on how to pair your device.
