Here’s a copy of a slide from my publishing talk. This compares the numbers of papers published in some general chemistry journals and a few non-chemistry-specific journals; it hammers home just how big PLOS One is! The data comes from Web of Science (WoS) for 2012, and the results are refined for article types ‘Articles’ and ‘Reviews’. PLOS One accounts for just under 2% of all 2012 papers in WoS using these criteria. (Numbers of publications for each journal have been rounded to the nearest 10 for the purposes of the slide).
