PLOS Announces New Venue For Research On Disease Outbreaks

In the PLOS “Speaking of Medicine” blog, Liz Flavall, publications manager for PLOS Currents, on Friday announced “a new venue for the rapid publication of research in all aspects of infectious disease outbreaks, PLOS Currents: Outbreaks.” She adds, “The emergence of a disease outbreak creates the need for up-to-date, reliable information that is readily available,” and “PLOS Currents: Outbreaks will aim for a swift peer review turnaround in order to provide a channel for the publication of breaking research when it is most needed” (6/21).
