Meet the Editors going above and beyond at PLOS

All our Academic Editors and peer reviewers provide a considerable service to the scientific community, as they volunteer their valuable time to make sure rigor and fairness is applied to their review.

But there are some Academic Editors who have gone above and beyond and contributed their expertise in additional ways. Here are just a few from the hundreds we’d like to thank for going that extra mile or ten!

‘These editors were integral in the development of the PLOS-wide policy on inclusivity in global research – a programme that aims to improve transparency in the reporting of research performed outside of researchers’ own country or community and ensures that PLOS publications reporting global research adhere to high standards for research ethics and authorship.’

“These Section Editors from PLOS’ environmental journals have been contributing on a collaborative project aimed at developing the journals as dynamic forums for driving environmental policy and decision-making. As a first step, editors from the three journals have been meeting to map out our shared priorities in this space. In this work, we plan to work with authors and editors to highlight the relevance of the research we publish to policy and practice, to strengthen connections between academic and societal stakeholders, and to facilitate contributions to key international assessments and report. Read more about this initiative.”
