PLOS is a nonprofit Open Access publisher, innovator and advocacy organization with a mission to lead a transformation in research communication—making it better, faster and more effective. PLOS achieves this by making scientific articles (including the underlying data) immediately and freely available to anyone, anywhere to be downloaded, printed, distributed, read, and reused without restriction as long as the author and the original source are properly attributed according to the Creative Commons Attribution License that is used. Here is an FAQ on PLOS’ data policy that will help clarify the policy and answer questions. You can read the entire data policy and an accompanying editorial.
