The e^+e^−→pp cross section and the proton magnetic form factor have been measured in the center-of-mass energy range from 3.0 to 6.5 GeV using the initial-state radiation technique with an undetected photon. This is the first measurement of the form factor at energies higher than 4.5 GeV. The analysis is based on 469  fb^(−1) of integrated luminosity collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II collider at e+e− center-of-mass energies near 10.6 GeV. The branching fractions for the decays J/ψ→pp and ψ(2S)→pp have also been measured.
