New Scientific Journal at Vanguard of Free Access Publishing Movement

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 13, 2003

The premier issue of the first free journal from the Public Library of Science, PLoS Biology, is now available online, although traffic to the site since the announcement has resulted in intermittent access. From the editorial statement:

  • “PLoS Biology, and every PLoS journal to follow, will be an open-access publication–everything we publish will immediately be freely available to anyone, anywhere, to download, print, distribute, read, and use without charge or other restrictions, as long as proper attribution of authorship is maintained.” Content is available in multiple formats: Abstract, Full Text, PDF, and Supplemental Data.
