U-MN faculty publish in Public Library of Science

From January to November 2009, U-MN faculty published 30 articles in Public Library of Science journals. This represents a 57% increase over 2008. PLoS maintains rigorous standards of peer review; less than half of the articles submitted by UMN faculty were accepted for publication.

Two thirds of the accepted articles were published in PLoS One, PLoS' vehicle "for the swift publication of original research in all areas of science and medicine, with innovative user tools for post-publication commenting, rating, and discussion."
