openfigs: Only the Raddest PLOS Figures

While working on new features for the PLOS journals we come across a lot of fantastic figures. We started collecting our favorites to share internally but soon realized that this figure collection could be enjoyed by anybody.

Head on over to to see some of the most beautiful, amusing, bizarre, meaningful, or otherwise excellent figures from PLOS papers. You can also keep up on Twitter by following @openfigs.

This isn’t an official PLOS tumblr by any means, but we hope you find it entertaining. Feel free to suggest figures to include via the submit link on the left of the openfigs site.

And as always, all figures are open access, which in most cases means they are distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License. This license permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author and source are credited. Feel free to read, reuse, remix, and/or cite this research
