Publishing Schedule

PLOS strives to keep a continuous publication schedule so that articles are published online as soon as they are ready and as quickly as possible, as often as daily. We make exceptions for articles that need to be scheduled at a specific time, press released content, and other situations. All publications roll up into monthly issues with the exception of PLOS ONE, PLOS Climate, PLOS Global Public Health, and PLOS Water.

Indexing

PLOS content is indexed widely by services including but not limited to those listed below. Recently launched journals will apply to relevant indexing services as soon as they are eligible, and the table below will be updated accordingly.
