PLOS Digital Health publishes boundary-breaking research that uses digital tools, technologies, and data to advance every aspect of health care. Our journal brings together research from engineers, clinicians, and researchers as well as social scientists and industry leaders to advance health care technologies and decision-making tools, or broaden accessible, effective care options for diverse communities around the world. We’ll work alongside this community of leaders to shape how Open Science transforms the future of research communication in the field. Through practices like sharing preprints, open data and open code, we empower researchers to ensure progress in this rapidly changing field is discoverable, reproducible and immediately accessible to all.
