EBSCO and BioOne are in partnership to increase the discovery of over 100,000 scholarly articles from biosence research journals.  The EDS will index the metadata of these journals for full discovery in the EDS.  Mutual customers may then access the fulltext via the EDS.  More from the press release below.

IPSWICH, Mass. — May 7, 2013 — BioOne Online Journals are now searchable via EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), from EBSCO Publishing. EBSCO Discovery Service users are able to search more than 100,000 scholarly articles from bioscience research journals in the Base Index of EBSCO Discovery Service. The addition of this valuable resource adds to the rapidly growing STM content available to EDS users.

BioOne aggregates publications in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences.  The collection of high-impact bioscience research journals stems from societies, libraries, academe and the private sector – making it an ideal resource for students and researchers. BioOne’s collaboration of publications includes 176 titles from 132 publishers, featuring  timely content on a wide-array of today’s most pressing topics, including global warming, stem cell research and ecological & biodiversity conservation.

 

EBSCO Discovery Service customers may use a CustomLink to access full text on the BioOne site. CustomLinks are a feature that dynamically creates links from a result to related information on another web site and is one of many linking options for EDS customers to extend the reach of discovery.

 

BioOne is part of a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. Partners include the world’s largest scholarly journal & book publishers including Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell, Springer Science & Business Media, Taylor & Francis Informa, Sage Publications, Nature Publishing, IEEE, ACM and thousands of others. Partners also include content providers, such as LexisNexis, Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), JSTOR, ARTstor, Credo Reference, Encyclopedia Britannica, World Book, ABC-CLIO, The Hathi Trust and many others.

 

EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institution’s information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box—searching made even more powerful because of the quality of metadata and depth and breadth of coverage.

 

EBSCO Discovery Service is quickly becoming the discovery selection for many libraries (www.ebscohost.com/discovery/eds-news), and an obvious partner for content providers. Because the service builds on the foundation provided by the EBSCOhost® platform, libraries gain a full user experience for discovering their collections/OPAC—which is not typical in the discovery space. Further still, in the many universities and other libraries where EBSCOhost is the most-used platform for premium research, users are not asked to change their pathways or habits for searching. There’s simply more to discover on the familiar EBSCOhost platform, and the same can be said for library administrators who can leverage their previous work with EBSCOadmin.
