Non-profit scientific publisher BioOne has announced a partnership with The Wikipedia Library, a project of the Wikimedia Foundation, to offer Wikipedia’s volunteer editing community free access to BioOne Complete. This access provides authoritative references for relevant Wikipedia content that will enhance effective research by those who create and update articles on Wikipedia in the biological, environmental, and ecological sciences. BioOne joins more than 60 other publishing partners that contribute essential peer-reviewed resources to the Wikipedia Library.
According to Sam Walton, Product Manager at the Wikimedia Foundation, the wealth of information offered through this partnership helps give Wikipedia editors the tools they need to do effective research on critical topics. This helps Wikipedia remain reliable and trustworthy for its millions of monthly readers.
BioOne Complete features over 200 journals with more than 150,000 articles spanning highly relevant areas of public interest including the effects of climate change, agriculture, basic biology, biodiversity, and conservation.
