When you choose to publish with PLOS, your research makes an impact. Make your work accessible to all, without restrictions, and accelerate scientific discovery with options like preprints and published peer review that make your work more Open.

Partner with us to change the publishing landscape and make Open Access more accessible to all.

Open Access is evolving. Scholarly publishing stakeholders must collaborate to ensure a diverse and sustainable publishing ecosystem. 

At PLOS, we believe anyone should be able to publish their science regardless of their ability to pay to read or pay to publish. We believe APCs should be just one part of a mixed model ecosystem. And we believe partnership in collaboration with research institutions, consortia, funders, and service providers is the only way to achieve these goals.

As we partner to disrupt existing business models and diversify our publishing ecosystem, we have to ensure that sustainability and equity are front and center. Anyone whose research stands the test of peer review should be able to openly read and publish. The library community is a critical partner to achieving these goals.
