PLOS partners with EarthArXiv for 2023

We are pleased to announce that PLOS has entered into a partnership with EarthArXiv—a preprint server focused on earth and planetary science, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research. EarthArXiv is a community-based server, governed by a diverse advisory council with representatives from many regions and institutions, and hosted by the California Digital Library (CDL), an organization committed to open scholarship.

This relationship will open new opportunities for authors submitting to PLOS Climate, PLOS Sustainability and Transformation, and PLOS Water to post preprints with ease. Beginning early in 2023, submitting authors will have the option to automatically forward their manuscript to the EarthArXiv preprint server, directly from our submission system. 

We see preprints as integral to our overarching mission of accelerating progress in scholarly research and we’re thrilled to expand the benefits of facilitated posting to more of the researchers and research communities we serve.


Visit plos.org to learn more about the benefits of preprints for authors and the research community. And watch this space for updates on the new service!
