PLoS Currents Has a New Publishing Platform

We are pleased to announce that PLoS Currents has moved to a new publishing platform, offering easier interaction to all users.

This innovative, online publication channel for the rapid communication of new scientific research and ideas aims to minimize delays between the generation and publication of new research. All content published is peer-reviewed, citable, publicly archived in PubMed, and indexed by Scopus.

PLoS Currents removes barriers to communication and exchange through:

  • A single, integrated solution for writing and publishing
  • Flexible article format for increased ease of submission
  • Streamlined peer-review process that establishes the legitimacy of the work
  • Individual sections tailored to a specific research community

Its six sections include:

For this redesign, we partnered with Solvitor LLC* to implement Annotum (the name of this new publishing platform). Carl Leubsdorf, Jr., founder of Solvitor LLC, describes Annotum as “an open-source, open-access, open-process authoring and publishing system based on WordPress.”

We welcome you to browse articles and submit your research to one of the PLoS Currents sections today. Contact us at currents@plos.org.

*Annotum is a product of Solvitor LLC with heavy lifting by Crowd Favorite, and with special thanks to Google, PLoS, NIH/NLM/NCBI, and Automattic.
