ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the online database of Public Library of Science (PLoS), which is often referred to as the PLoS One and was launched in December 2006. It notes that PLoS One keeps the nonprofit organization financial stable since it has generated an increased author fees due to its use of light peer-review system to publish any article that is methodologically acceptable. It further states that PLoS One had generated about $1.4 million from 1,230 articles published in 2007, and it has already published 1,158 articles in early 2008.
