PLOS announces partnership with bioRxiv
The partnership will bring the volume of preprints to PLOS through a collaborative screening model, in which "PLOS will perform initial manuscript screening compatible with bioRxiv standards, covering appropriate scope and article type, plagiarism detection, and other basic ethical and technical criteria.
