PLOS to Publish New OA Journals Focusing on Sustainability, Equity, and Health

PLOS is rolling out five new peer-reviewed OA journals this year. They all have “an emphasis on directly addressing the most pressing health and environmental issues facing society today” and “will have institutional business model options that do not require individual Article Processing Charges (APCs).”

PLOS notes, “Even though Open Access is now widely adopted, and Open Science is advancing, current frameworks exclude many voices and communities. Our next phase of work is more than just enabling someone to read or share an article, it’s about building a framework for equitable participation and distribution of knowledge.”

The five journals are PLOS Climate (“to tackle the challenges of a changing climate at a global scale”), PLOS Sustainability and Transformation (to drive “critical progress in optimizing the use of renewable biological resources”), PLOS Water (to drive “safe water sanitation and hygiene measures, as well as the sustainable consumption, management and supply of water as a vital resource”), PLOS Global Public Health (“a global forum for public health research of the highest ethical and methodological rigor”), and PLOS Digital Health (which “will publish boundary-breaking research that uses digital tools, technologies, and data science to advance every aspect of health care”).

For more information, read the press release.
