Scholarly Publishing: BioOne Officially Launches Mobile Interface To Access All Content
From the BioOne News Release:
BioOne is pleased to announce the official launch of BioOne Mobile, an optimized website now available to smartphone users at www.bioone.org. With this new mobile interface, all content from BioOne’s 167 journals and book series is available for easy access to faculty, students, and researchers via their iPhones, Androids, 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 the site 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.
Users associated with an institutional subscription can easily pair their device with their university’s access privileges, giving them access all subscribed content, whether they are in the library or on-the-go.
BioOne has created a number of resources to assist libraries and researchers using BioOne Mobile. Please visit www.bioone.org/page/resources/mobile for more information.
