Reassurance for readers - from PLOS ONE editors

Posted by emmave on 01 May 2013 at 09:27 GMT

While we are unable to comments on the specifics of any confidential submission, the PLOS ONE Editorial Team would like to make clear that the journal takes great pains never to share submitted work externally with anyone other than Academic Editors or peer-reviewers evaluating it for potential publication, without the explicit permission of the author. We hope that this reassures readers and Professor Dijksterhuis of the integrity of our editorial actions.
