Santos New Academic Editor for PLOS ONE

Assistant Professor Hudson Santos becomes an Academic Editor for PLOS ONE, joining an editorial team that represents over 79 countries.

PLOS is as a nonprofit Open Access publisher with a mission to accelerate progress in science and medicine by leading a transformation in research communication and by providing free and unrestricted access to research, open data, transparency in peer review and an open approach to science assessment.

The principal role of Academic Editors is to oversee the peer review process. Typically, this involves evaluating a manuscript and inviting external peer-reviewers to judge different scientific and methodological aspects of the work, before determining whether that manuscript meets PLOS ONE’s publication criteria.
