When you choose to publish with PLOS, your research makes an impact. Make your work accessible to all, without restrictions, and accelerate scientific discovery with options like preprints and published peer review that make your work more Open.


PLOS Biology at SfN 2013: Open for Neuroscience

BIO-neuro-300x250At PLOS Biology, we believe strongly that we are open for a reason: our aim is to publish high quality research in areas of broad significance, ensuring that it reaches the widest possible audience without any barriers to access. Neuroscience is an area of research that we believe should be as openly available as possible by being published in an open access, CC-BY journal, with associated data being mineable and reusable.

PLOS Biology publishes neuroscience research of exceptional significance, originality, and relevance that informs research in its field and influences thinking beyond. We encourage you to consider PLOS Biology as a high visibility outlet for your future research. We are interested in all areas of neuroscience, from molecular and cellular to systems and cognitive, and we welcome translational studies. To get a taste of the neuroscience research that we have recently published, check out the links below to access the latest research in this field.

I will also be attending Society for Neuroscience 2013 in San Diego, California, together with my colleagues from PLOS ONE, and while there I very much look forward to meeting with our Academic Editors, authors, and reviewers in the neuroscience research community.

If you are also attending SfN 2013 and would like to find out more about how to publish in an Open Access journal, please visit us at the PLOS booth, number 136, where you can meet with my PLOS colleagues and me. PLOS Biology is also planning a ‘meet the editor’ session on Sunday, November 10th from 12-2pm – so do come by then (or alternatively email me at biologue[at] to arrange a time to chat).

Looking forward to meeting you in San Diego!
