PLoS ONE is a reviewed scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science on an open-access basis. All content in PLoS ONE is published under a free Creative Commons license. Texts are indexed, among others in Google Scholar, Scopus, PubMed, PubMed Central and MEDLINE.

The PLoS ONE publisher uses new article level metrics (ALM) for publications on the Internet. These metrics indicate the number of cites in the databases (e.g. Web of Science, Scopus), social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook), programs for managing research papers (e.g. Mendeley, CiteULike), blogs and also count the number of hits on the article’s website. ALM is a new approach to evaluating single research papers and it increases the importance of social media in the science assessment. It is also an alternative to the overall evaluation of journals currently applied and giving them Impact Factor.
