What does PLoS deliver for the publication fee?
Above all, PLoS journals deliver OA. For you as an author, that means your work will have maximum impact. Anyone with an interest in your work will be able to find it, read it, download it, redistribute it, translate it, and so on. There is growing evidence, for example a recent paper in PLoS Biology, that OA increases the usage and citation of published work. But it doesn’t end there.
