“The journal continues to be able to publish exceptional research, methods, software, education, and practice of science papers because the authors contributing to the journal continue to do exceptional work and share it with us. The open science ideals on which PLOS was founded continue to guide us and our ongoing community projects in code sharing and reproducibility. And none of this is possible without the many volunteer editors and reviewers, and we simply can’t thank and praise them enough for all their hard work.”
In 2021, PLOS Computational Biology articles were referenced over 2,800 times by media outlets around the world. Explore articles that made the news.
