From the BioOne Web Site:
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 sciences.
BioOne was created in 1999 by five collaborating organizations: the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS), SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition), The University of Kansas, Greater Western Library Alliance (formerly Big 12 Plus Libraries Consortium), and Allen Press, Inc. Together, these five organizations established BioOne as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in the District of Columbia, headquartered at the Association of Research Libraries office in DC’s Dupont Circle. Each BioOne founding organization made—and continues to make—substantial financial and/or in-kind contributions to BioOne’s development.
