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.

PLOS BLOGS The Official PLOS Blog


PLOS has published a lot of great blog content in the past three months, and we don’t expect our readers to be up to date on everything. So, we are starting a new blog series called, ‘In case you missed it (ICYMI)’, a collection of some of the best reads or key announcements from the previous quarter. Without further ado, here you go. Happy reading!

Open Science Helps Move Your Research Forward

The blog below is by PLOS’ Editorial Director Suzanne Farley. She talks about how publishers have a duty to the trust and integrity of the scientific record to be actively involved in bringing the distinct identities and unique perspectives, knowledge, and diversity of all researchers to the process.

In the blog below, we announce our new policy to mitigate ‘parachute research.’ This occurs when researchers travel to under-resourced communities, conduct their research, and leave, often with little or poor understanding or involvement of the communities they studied, and few direct benefits to local participants.
