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.

How can we increase adoption of open research practices?

Researchers are satisfied with their ability to share their own research data but may struggle with accessing other researchers’ data.

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.

Editors' picks
2020

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.  

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

Only publishing positive results creates bias in the literature which can dramatically alter the interpretation of all of the available data…
