International Advisory Group

PLOS aims to be truly international by removing unnecessary barriers to the immediate availability, access and use of its published research; and by engaging a geographically diverse group of researchers and medical practitioners in the editorial process. PLOS’ International Advisory Group is a group of eminent individuals from around the world whose aim is to ensure that we address issues that will encourage this global participation.

It is with sadness that we note the passing of Professor Phillip A. R. Hockey in January 2013. Professor Hockey had been a member of the IAG since its inception and PLOS is very grateful for his years of service and valuable advice. Professor Hockey was based at the Percey FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology at the University of Cape Town.
