How to access OSNA Journals

Members of OSNA societies have online access to journals published by the societies to which they belong.  Recently, the process has changed for accessing journals on BioOne (Auk, Condor, Journal of Raptor Research and Wilson Journal of Ornithology).  Now (unless you are logging in through your university’s library portal) you must use the OSNA Member Portal to gain access to recent articles that are not Open Access.  This process is different than previously, when your BioOne account provided confirmation of your membership.  You can still have a BioOne account for Table of Contents alerts, etc., but you must use the OSNA Member Portal to obtain access to articles that are not Open Access.

Guidelines for online access for members are presented below for all OSNA journals on several platforms, including BioOne.  Guidelines will also be available on the OSNA Member Portal, in addition to society websites.  If you have questions about online access, contact Scott Gillihan at OSNAmembers at gmail.com.
