PLOS is pleased to announce an enhancement to its article pages that enables both our staff and others to add media stories to individual article pages. Whether you are a researcher, journalist, funder, institution administrator or the paper’s author, PLOS encourages you to submit links to new media content. From the respective article, simply click on the “Please let us know” link at the bottom of the media coverage section on the Related Content tab. Fill out the form specifying the additional media links, and PLOS staff will manage the rest.
This new tool uses automatic harvesting and filtering, hand curation by PLOS staff and now adds crowd-sourcing by others to provide the most comprehensive view of available media coverage. To get more technical background to this exciting enhancement, please see the PLOS Tech Blog.
