Empowering a community publishing articles in Biochemistry, including enzymology, structural biology, lipidomics and lipids, proteomics and proteins, biocatalysis, metabolism, biosynthesis and much more.
At PLOS, we put researchers and research first.
Our expert editorial boards collaborate with reviewers to provide accurate assessment that readers can trust. Authors have a choice of journals, publishing outputs, and tools to open their science to new audiences and get credit. We collaborate to make science, and the process of publishing science, fair, equitable, and accessible for the whole community.
PLOS publishes a suite of influential Open Access journals across all areas of science and medicine.
Rigorously reported, peer reviewed and immediately available without restrictions, promoting the widest readership and impact possible. We encourage you to consider the journal’s scope before submission, as they are all editorially independent and specialized in their publication criteria and breadth of content.

Reproducibility is important for the future of science.
PLOS is Open so that everyone can read, share, and reuse the research we publish. Underlying our commitment to Open Science is our data availability policy which ensures every piece of your research is accessible and replicable. We also go beyond that, empowering authors to preregister their research, and publish protocols, negative and null results, and more.

Exploring code notebooks through community focused collaboration
The lack of reproducibility of research findings is a continuing concern in modern science. Code reproducibility is a central part of the problem and we have been exploring code notebooks as one potential solution.
Imagining a transformed scientific publication landscape
Open Science is not a finish line, but rather a means to an end. An underlying goal behind the movement towards Open Science is to conduct and publish more reliable and thoroughly reported research.
Here, PLOS ONE Staff Editors from the different subject teams reflect on the past year choosing some of their favorite research. From research on plastic pollution to improving prognosis predictions for patients with cancer, we hope that these selections will have something of interest for everyone.
