PLOS Sustainability and Transformation brings together leading research addressing the global challenges of transitioning to a resource-efficient, food-secure, sustainable future. Our journal provides a multidisciplinary forum for research and policy experts across natural and social sciences, technology and economics to share knowledge and accelerate the communication of research that advances progress in pursuit of these shared goals. We will work alongside researchers to shape Open Science and Research practices that facilitate trust, transparency, and discoverability of research that influences key decision-makers, and has a lasting impact on the sustainability of our environment, our economy and the societies around the world who depend upon it.
