PLoS Announces New Community OA Journals

The Public Library of Science ( announced plans for its next suite of open access journals—PLoS Community Journals. The three new journals (PLoS Computational Biology, PLoS Genetics, and PLoS Pathogens) are modeled after successful discipline-based journals published by scientific societies. All papers appearing in these journals are freely available immediately upon publication for anyone to read, download, redistribute, and reuse. Authors of articles in PLoS Community Journals are asked to pay a $1,500 open access publication charge, which is normally covered by their research grants, funding agencies, or employing institutions. The fee is waived for those who can't afford it. PLoS said it is seeking additional partnerships and collaborations within different scientific communities and professional societies to facilitate the launch of other open access initiatives.

PLoS Computational Biology (, scheduled to launch in June, will be published in partnership with the International Society for Computational Biology ( PLoS Genetics is accepting submissions ( and will launch in July. The PLoS Pathogens Web site will go live in March to accept submissions; it will begin publishing in the fall.
