BioOne

BioOne is the product of collaboration between scientific societies, libraries, academe and the private sector and brings to the Web an aggregation of the full-texts of high-impact bioscience research journals. Most of BioOne's titles are published by small societies and non-commercial publishers, and, until now, have been available only in printed form. BioOne provides integrated, cost-effective access to a thoroughly linked information resource of interrelated journals focused on the biological, ecological and environmental sciences.

Journal of Biology

The Journals of Biology is a new international journal, published by BioMed Central, which provides immediate open access to research articles of the highest standard, similar to those published by Nature, Science or Cell. Unlike the latter, all research articles published in Journal of Biology will be permanently available free of charge and without restrictions, ensuring the widest possible dissemination of the work.

NCBI

Established in 1988 as a national resource for molecular biology information, NCBI creates public databases, conducts research in computational biology, develops software tools for analysing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information - all for the better understanding of molecular processes affecting human health and disease.
