Oxford University Press to publish BioScience journal starting in 2014

WASHINGTON, July 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oxford University Press (OUP) is delighted to announce that beginning in January 2014 it will be publishing the renowned journal BioScience, from the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS).

Since 1964, BioScience has presented readers with timely and authoritative overviews of current research in biology, accompanied by essays and discussion sections on education, public policy, history, and the conceptual underpinnings of the biological sciences.

A peer-reviewed, heavily cited, monthly publication with content written and edited for accessibility to researchers, educators, and students alike, BioScience is subscribed to online and in print by libraries around the world and provided to all AIBS members as a part of regular AIBS dues.

With the stated goal of serving as a "Forum for Integrating the Life Sciences," BioScience includes articles about research findings and techniques, advances in biology education, professionally written feature articles about the latest frontiers in biology, discussions of professional issues, book reviews, a policy column, and an education column. Roundtables, forums, and viewpoint articles offer the perspectives of opinion leaders and invite further commentary.

Occasional special sections in BioScience provide an in-depth look at important topics. Recent special sections have addressed animal migration, protected areas, acid rain, science and public policy, the US Long Term Ecological Research network, and conservation-reliant species.

Tim Beardsley, AIBS Editorial Director and Editor in Chief of BioScience, said: "the American Institute of Biological Sciences is immensely pleased that BioScience will be published through Oxford University Press, one of the world's leading scientific publishers. This partnership will bring BioScience to more readers globally and advance our mission of helping to integrate the life sciences."

The President of Oxford University Press USA, Niko Pfund, said: "we are thrilled by the opportunity to work with such a leading organization in the life sciences, and look forward to putting this vital research into the hands of a wider global audience."
