AIBS and BioOne are working with JSTOR, the not-for-profit online digital archive, to digitize all back issues of BioScience. Full-text PDF volumes of BioScience, dating from the journal's inception as the AIBS bulletin in 1951 up to the most recent five years, are now available at www.jstor.org for searching, browsing, downloading, and printing by patrons whose libraries subscribe to JSTOR's new Biological Sciences Collection.
Soon all individual members of AIBS also will have direct access to the BioScience archive files at JSTOR through a members-only section of the AIBS Web site. Details will be announced later this year.
More recent issues of BioScience, from January 1999 onward, are already available for library subscribers and AIBS individual members on the Ingenta platform. There is no additional charge to institutional or individual print subscribers for online access, and libraries have the option of subscribing to the online version only. Nonsubscribers can purchase individual articles for $10 each. For details, please see www.aibs.org/bioscience/current_issue.html.
