Meet PLOS Biology's Editor-in-Chief, Nonia Pariente

PLOS Biology is happy to welcome Nonia Pariente to our team as Editor-in-Chief. To help our community get to know her, we asked her to share some of her initial thoughts on joining the journal team and the work ahead of us to continue pushing the boundaries of publishing in the life sciences.

What makes PLOS Biology and PLOS in general stand out is that it is an organization that was founded with the goal and drive to innovate the process of scientific publication for the benefit of scientists and scientific advance. Thinking outside the box is almost an obligation.
