Public Library of Science (PLoS) launches a blog

"PLoS ONE launches community blog for journal authors and readers – 30 Mar 2009

PLoS ONE, a free online journal published by open access publisher Public Library of Science (PLoS), US, has announced the launch of everyONE (, a new community blog for PLoS ONE authors and readers.

As of March 2009, PLoS ONE has published over 5,000 articles, representing the work of over 30,000 authors and co-authors, and receives over 160,000 unique visitors per month. The blog is for authors who have published with the journal as well as for those who haven’t.

The blog has been named everyONE for three main reasons: PLoS ONE is for every rigorous research article that passes the publisher’s our peer-review process; it is a forum for research in every scientific discipline; and it is a source of information for every inquisitive reader with an interest in high-quality scientific research.

PLoS ONE is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal for all science and medicine. It features reports of original research from all disciplines within science and medicine. By not excluding papers on the basis of subject area, PLoS ONE seeks to facilitate the discovery of the connections between papers, whether within or between disciplines."
