Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

Public Library of Science

Founded in 2000, the Public Library of Science is an organisation in support of open-access science publishing. The initiative began with a letter, signed by thousands, urging publishers to commit to open access. When this failed to have the desired effect, the group pledged to create its own journals. The first of these, PLoS Biology, was launched in October 2003.
