The Keynote Session: Emerging Researchers was funded in part by PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases. IDM is grateful for PLOS’ support of our symposium. PLOS (Public Library of Science) is a leading nonprofit Open Access publisher, innovator and advocacy organization dedicated to accelerating progress in science and medicine by leading a transformation in research communication. The PLOS suite of journals – PLOS ONE, PLOS Biology, PLOS Medicine, PLOS Computational Biology, PLOS Genetics, PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases and PLOS Pathogens – contain rigorously peer-reviewed Open Access research articles from all areas of science and medicine, together with expert commentary and analysis. In addition to its suite of journals, PLOS advances innovations in scientific publishing through collections, collaborations, communities and an award-winning blog network. As a leading Open Access publisher, PLOS pursues a publishing strategy that optimizes the openness and integrity of the publication process by aiming to ensure that research outcomes are discoverable, accessible and available for discussion and that science communication is constructive, transparent and verifiable. PLOS strives to implement policies and innovations that promote reproducibility, credit and accountability, as these priorities support establishment of an Open Science culture, with open data, early sharing of work and clear contributor recognition. PLOS sees the benefit of Open Access content in relation to future advances in machine-readable formats and text and data mining. Founded to catalyze a revolution in scientific publishing by demonstrating the value and feasibility of Open Access publication, PLOS is committed, and uniquely positioned, to innovative and forward-looking solutions to scientific communication.
