WCAG compliance

BioOne are working with a goal of meeting the standards set forth by the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, levels A and AA). In 2014, BioOne underwent a voluntary accessibility audit conducted by The goal of this audit was to gain a more granular understanding of BioOne's compliance as compared to current W3C guidelines, and to prioritize future developments aimed at enhancing accessibility. The evaluation uses a 4-point severity scale, with Severity 1 representing a functionality problem that prohibits use to some users, and Severity 4 representing mild functionality issues that do not need to be changed but if adjusted, would make accessibility a bit easier. We are pleased to report that the BioOne site only had one compliance issue marked as Severity 1, regarding our Printer-Friendly dialog box. This issue is scheduled for resolution by our technology partner early in 2015. You can find more information about the WCAG 2.0 Compliance for BioOne here: (23/2/15)

BioOne Annual Subscription Price in Asia Pacific - April 2001

US$10,000 (ten thousand U.S. dollars) per year per institution (for example, per college or university). This annual fee includes the content fee of BioOne collection of electronic journals and OCLC ECO Archival and Access fee for 12 months.  Prepayment in U.S. dollars is required for all subscriptions.

Subscription can begin on the first day of any month.  However, both a completed order form (provided by OCLC Asia Pacific) and the prepayment must reach OCLC Asia Pacific by the 20th day of any month in order to activate BioOne access on the first day of the following month – no exceptions, please.

If an institution subscribes to BioOne but does not subscribe to any other electronic journals through OCLC ECO, the institution is entitled to five simultaneous logons for accessing BioOne electronic journals.  However, if the institution also subscribes to other electronic journals through OCLC ECO, OCLC will then add five additional simultaneous logons to the institution’s ECO account.

During the subscription term of 12 months, if the number of BioOne electronic journals increases, subscribers can also access these additional BioOne electronic journals through the subscription term without additional charge.  However, the price can be increased at the time of next renewal.

Whether libraries subscribe to print version of the BioOne journals or not, the annual subscription fee of the BioOne collection of electronic journals is the same.
