PLOS is pleased to announce the publication of its 100,000th article, an achievement that represents the efforts of authors, editors, reviewers and staff from more than 200 countries. In the 10 years of publishing at PLOS, which began with the launch of PLOS Biology, it has demonstrated that Open Access is viable, scalable and sustainable.
In the PLOS 2012 author survey 93% of authors said they are likely to submit to a PLOS journal again. PLOS continues to gain momentum offering full Open Access under a Creative Commons Attribution License which enables reuse as well as free access through a suite of seven influential journals—including PLOS ONE, now the largest journal in the world.
PLOS is grateful for the community support of its mission as an advocate, publisher and innovator and redoubles its commitment to universal, barrier-free science research communication. Here’s to another 100K.
