Meet the PLOS editors helping us lead a transformation in science communication

Neither PLOS, nor the wider scientific community, would be where we are without the hard-working team of editors and peer reviewers who work across our journals. We’re proud to have the support of a wide network of an exceptionally skilled and diligent international team of contributors who continue to offer their valuable time.

But there are some PLOS contributors who have gone that extra mile and contributed their expertise in many additional ways.  

Read on as we highlight just a few of these editors and reviewers and their outstanding work this year.
