I’m doing some research for an interview with a faculty member here at the Institute for Computational Medicine who has published an article in PLoS Computational Biology. Along the way, I found out that the Johns Hopkins University is a member of the PLoS consortium, and there’s even an automated page on their site that shows papers published in PLoS journals by Johns Hopkins authors. My quick manual count was about 75 papers since 2005.
It’s pretty clear that with 75 papers in two years from Johns Hopkins alone, PLoS is off to a great start. This can only mean good things for the future of open access publishing in the sciences.
