Transforming Research Communication



Rich citations make references work the way they should, providing a diverse set of information about how and where two pieces of research are connected.



Open Evaluation gives scientists a new way to provide valuable, structured feedback on articles they've read.
We've distilled the evaluation process into a few key feedback areas, including scientific merit, clarity, and the importance of the findings.


Hi! We’re PLOS Labs. We’re researchers, designers, and developers, creating new ways for scientists to share their ideas with each other and the world. We work with the research community, building better tools for science and scientific publishing. We're part of the Public Library of Science (PLOS), an open-access non-profit scientific publisher. Want to know more about us and our work? Try out one of our prototypes, check out our blog, or drop us a line — we'd love to talk with you.
