Why publishing in PLOS ONE is the right choice for you.
PLOS ONE is an inclusive journal community working together to advance science for the benefit of society, now and in the future.
An intentionally broad scope journal, we specialize in finding ways to ensure the peer review of papers that may span multiple disciplines or be unable to find a fit in more niche publications. Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research, negative and null results are all in scope.
PLOS ONE evaluates research on scientific validity, strong methodology, and high ethical standards—not perceived significance.
