PLOS (Public Library of Science) is a nonprofit Open Access publisher, empowering researchers to accelerate progress in science and medicine by leading a transformation in research communication.
Our suite of journals – PLOS ONE, PLOS Biology, PLOS Climate, PLOS Digital Health, PLOS Global Public Health, PLOS Medicine, PLOS Computational Biology, PLOS Genetics, PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, PLOS Pathogens, PLOS Sustainability and Transformation, and PLOS Water– publish rigorously peer-reviewed research articles together with expert commentary and analysis. All articles are Open Access to share science with the widest possible audience.
We empower researchers from all demographics, geographies, and disciplines to open their science.
In addition to our journals, PLOS connects hundreds of thousands of researchers through our online communities, social media, and the award-winning PLOS Blog Network. Every day.
Broad visibility and openness help researchers, funders, policymakers, and the general public connect to science and realize its potential.
