INTRODUCING COMMUNITY ACTION PUBLISHING

Open Access is not truly open without easy and equitable opportunities to publish. To support authors of all research communities, funding backgrounds, and institutional requirements, all PLOS journals offer APC-alternative business models through institutional partnerships. 

Check if your institution is partnering with us and see if you can submit your research to PLOS Medicine without paying APCs. 

NEW COLLECTIONS
​PLOS and medRxiv

We’re delighted to announce that PLOS and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) are expanding our longstanding partnership to offer authors more options for sharing their research in preprint form.
