BioOne / BioScience Content Online Free in Developing Countries

BioOne (www.BioOne.org), an AIBS-partnered online aggregation of science journals — including BioScience — participates in the World Health Organization's HINARI (Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative) program. Created in 2002 with over 2,000 journals from the world's leading publishers, HINARI provides free or nearly free access to approximately 70 scientific journals in 481 public institutions in 53 developing countries.

How it Works

Public institutions in countries with GNP per capita under $1000 are eligible for free access to the literature. Institutions in countries with GNP per capita between $1000 and $3000 are eligible for access at reduced prices.

"Public institutions" include academic, research, and government institutions; schools of medicine, nursing, public health, and pharmacy; universities; health and medical research institutes; government offices working in the health sector; and medical libraries.

If you know of an institution that would like access to BioOne journals, direct them to the HINARI Programme Web site website. In the section titled "Register", follow the link to the online registration form.
