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.


Scientists for Open Science
16th September 2021

There is more to research than articles.

Open Science practices create new opportunities for researchers to easily build a positive reputation and advance their career. Publishing under an Open Access license and sharing other Open Science artifacts maximize reach and citation potential.

Resources like study designs, protocols, code and methods; raw data and images; preprints, peer reviews and commentary are research in and of themselves—and researchers deserve academic credit for their contributions in these areas.

  1. I totally agree with Prof Ndung’u and all on the Parachute helicopter science. Unfortunately, i
    will add that greed allows some LMICs investigators to even encourage and in fact perpetrate for that type of science.
