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 ASCB 2013: Open for Cell Biology

ASCB meet editorsAt PLOS Biology, we strongly believe 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. Cell biology 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 cell biology 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 cell biology. To get a taste of the research in cell biology that we have recently published, check out the links below to access the latest research in this field.

I will be attending the 2013 American Society of Cell Biology annual meeting in New Orleans next week 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 cell biology research community.

If you are also attending the meeting and would like to find out more about how to publish in an Open Access journal, please visit us at the PLOS booth, number 211, where you can meet me and my PLOS colleagues. PLOS Biology is organizing a ‘meet the editor’ session on Monday, December 16, from 12-1pm – so do come by then. Alternatively, you can email me at plosbiology[at] to arrange a time to chat.

Looking forward to meeting you in New Orleans!
