Provision for Open Access to World’s Science literature ::


The Public Library of Science (PLoS) endeavors to provide open access to the world's scientific and medical literature.

It seeks to initiate a change from traditional subscription-based scientific and medical journal publishing to open access publishing.

Presently, The Public Library of Science website is categorized into
1. Biology,
2. Medicine,
3. Computational Biology,
4. Genetics,
5. Pathogens and
6. Clinical Trials.

PLoS Biology as a peer-reviewed open-access journal, was recently ranked in the top-tier of life science journals by The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).

This section encompasses works of exceptional significance in all areas of biological science, from molecules to ecosystems, including works at the interface with other disciplines, such as chemistry, medicine, and mathematics.

In the past week the top viewed PLoS Biology articles include — A Map of Recent Positive Selection in the Human Genome; Men, Women, and Ghosts in Science; Gene Losses during Human Origins; Pandemic Influenza:

Top Viewed Articles:

The Inside Story and Ultrasonic Songs of Male Mice, and West Nile Virus Epidemics in North America Are Driven by Shifts in Mosquito Feeding Behavior.

PLoS Medicine is an international, multidisciplinary medical journal that aims to publish outstanding human studies that substantially enhance the understanding of human health and disease.

This has been found to be a very useful public resource on international medical research.

PLoS Medicine provides an open-access venue for important, peer-reviewed advances in all disciplines.

Some of the top articles one can browse in this section include:

Why Most Published Research Findings Are False ?;

Should Health Professionals Screen All Women for Domestic Violence?

Some of the new articles presented here include — Identification and Classification of Conserved RNA Secondary Structures in the Human Genome;

The emergence of Up and Down states in cortical networks; Estimating Costs and Benefits of CTL Escape Mutations in SIV/HIV Infection and Circadian Clocks Are Resounding in Peripheral Tissues.

Genetics and genomic research has grown at a rapid pace in the past 15 years.

PLoS Genetics reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the field, and the research featured here include issues ranging from nematodes to humans and from cancer to evolution.

Each research article is accompanied by a summary that places the findings in a broader context.

Among the top viewed articles in this section are -

DNA Sequences Shaped by Selection for Stability;

Genome-Wide Associations of Gene Expression Variation in Humans and Analysis of Ribosomal Protein Gene Structures:

Implications for Intron Evolution.

From molecules to physiology, PLoS Pathogens publishes important new ideas on bacteria, fungi, parasites, prions, and viruses that can contribute to the understanding of the biology of pathogens and pathogen-host interactions. Among the top articles that can be browsed here are - Modulation of Tumour Necrosis Factor by Microbial Pathogens;

The Scientific Response to a Pandemic, and Bordetella pertussis, the Causative Agent of Whopping Cough.

PLoS Clinical Trials aims to broaden the scope of clinical trials reporting by publishing the results of randomized trials in humans from all medical and public health disciplines.

The trials may investigate aspects of treatment or prevention, including drug or non-drug interventions.

The Public Library of Science is part of the global open access movement which includes Nobel laureates and other scientists, major funding agencies, publishers, librarians, patient advocacy groups, lawmakers, and many others.

PloS mission is to build a public library of science which would not only provide unrestricted access to scientific research ideas and discoveries, but also develop tools and materials to engage the interest and imagination of the public, helping the non-scientists to understand and enjoy scientific discoveries and the scientific process. If you are a scientist, doctor, patient, teacher, student, policy maker, or parent with an interest in science and medicine, you would not regret book marking The Public Library of Science at
