"Publishing a Special Collection with PLOS has been an excellent experience for me. It has given us the opportunity to present and discuss an important thematic issue in a high-profile peer-reviewed journal. The cost of the Collection is very reasonable compared to other journals with the same profile. The journal has shown flexibility and understanding throughout the process. And this has been key for me.”
