At PLOS, we put researchers and research first.

Our expert editorial boards collaborate with reviewers to provide accurate assessment that readers can trust. Authors have a choice of journals, publishing outputs, and tools to open their science to new audiences and get credit. We collaborate to make science, and the process of publishing science, fair, equitable, and accessible for the whole community.

Your New Open Science Journals


PLOS publishes a suite of influential Open Access journals across all areas of science and medicine.

Rigorously reported, peer reviewed and immediately available without restrictions, promoting the widest readership and impact possible. We encourage you to consider the journal’s scope before submission, as they are all editorially independent and specialized in their publication criteria and breadth of content.

Our research is specific in the pelvic floor muscle and urinary incontinence of pregnant women with and without gestational diabetes, and one of the reasons that contributed to this expansion was the different analyses performed by the multidisciplinary research team.

Reproducibility is important for the future of science.

PLOS is Open so that everyone can read, share, and reuse the research we publish. Underlying our commitment to Open Science is our data availability policy which ensures every piece of your research is accessible and replicable. We also go beyond that, empowering authors to preregister their research, and publish protocols, negative and null results, and more.

How can we increase adoption of open research practices?

Researchers are satisfied with their ability to share their own research data but may struggle with accessing other researchers’ data. Therefore, to increase data sharing in a findable and accessible way, PLOS will focus on better integrating existing data repositories and promoting their benefits rather than creating new solutions.

Open Science is not a finish line, but rather a means to an end. An underlying goal behind the movement towards Open Science is to conduct and publish more reliable and thoroughly reported research.

Editors' picks
