In 2022, PLOS Computational Biology articles were referenced over 16,172 times by media outlets around the world. Explore articles that made the news.
Open Access is not truly open without easy and equitable opportunities to publish. To support authors of all research communities, funding backgrounds, and institutional requirements, all PLOS journals offer APC-alternative business models through institutional partnerships.
Check if your institution is partnering with us and see if you can submit your research to PLOS Computational Biology without paying APCs.
In 2021, we adopted an enhanced code sharing policy for all papers. This change was developed in response to community needs and support of our Open Science initiatives on the journal. Learn more about the results from this trial.
