Chris Surridge notes that PLoS ONE is now one year old, and lets us in on a lot of interesting numbers relating to the journal:
- PLoS ONE now averages 60 submissions per week
- there are 368 members on the editorial board, up from 120 at the start
- Since December 2006, nearly 700 original articles have been published
This is quite a feat for any new journal!
If you wanted to give a gift for their birthday, Chris outlines the things they’d like:
Whenever you write about a published paper, be it in a journal or on a blog, always provide a link to the freely available version of the paper if one exists.
Whenever you read a paper in PLoS ONE, always rate it before leaving.
And most importantly….
Whenever you write a scientific paper, always, always, always publish it Open Access.
A very hearty congratulations and happy birthday from us here at Biocurious to the whole team at PLoS ONE, and the PLoS in general.
