When you choose to publish with PLOS, your research makes an impact. Make your work accessible to all, without restrictions, and accelerate scientific discovery with options like preprints and published peer review that make your work more Open.


ASCB 2016 meeting (San Francisco, Dec 3 – 7)


This Saturday the ASCB 2016 meeting kicks off in San Francisco, and the city is already packed with excited cell biologists from all over the world. PLOS Biology isn’t missing this annual date, and like every year, we’ll be open to receive your best research in cell biology (submit now). If you have an exciting piece of research, I’ll be very interested to hear about it, so please pass by the PLOS booth (# 229) and come to meet me in the ‘Meet the editors’ session on Sunday 4 Dec or Tuesday 6 Dec from 1-2 pm. You can find below a taster of the papers that we’ve published in this field within the last year, and you can also visit the editor’s picks collection that PLOS has put together for you.


Looking forward to meeting you in San Francisco!
