Journal Requirements To be accepted for publication in PLoS ONE, research articles must satisfy the following criteria: 1.The study presents the results of primary scientific research. 2. Results reported have not been published elsewhere. 3. Experiments, statistics, and other analyses are performed to a high technical standard and are described in sufficient detail. 6

4. Conclusions are presented in an appropriate fashion and are supported by the data. 5. The article is presented in an intelligible fashion and is written in Standard English. 6. The research meets all applicable standards for the ethics of experimentation and research integrity. 7. The article adheres to appropriate reporting guidelines (e.g. CONSORT, MIAME) and community standards for data availability.

7 Editorial criteria The Editorial Criteria of PLoS ONE Our mission at PLoS ONE is to rigorously peerreview primary scientific research and publish all articles that are judged to be technically and ethically sound and appropriately reported. Thus, we avoid subjective considerations such as the novelty and perceived importance of the paper, focusing only on the technical

aspects of the paper. The process 1. The paper is submitted to PLoS ONE (offices in Sa Francisco and Cambridge) 2. Publication assistants review keywords and identify relevant editors via classification matches. 3. Send paper to editor asking if he/she will take it

on. 9 The process 4. Editor agrees (or not) I read article and if not appropriate reject 5. Editor identifies two reviewers (based on a database of reviewers with classification matches) 6. Send e.mail to reviewers asking if he/she will

review the paper. 10 The process 7. Reviewer agrees (or not) 8. Editor gets reviewers feedback and makes a decision. 9. Sends e.mail to author with decision.

11 The process 10.Article returns with amendments. 11.Editor either accepts or sends to reviewers to re-review 12.Sends e.mail to author with decision

12 Decisions 1. Acceptance: The manuscript is appropriate for publication as it is. The manuscript will be checked to ensure that it conforms to the technical specifications that are needed to publish the paper. Following an acceptance I will not see the

manuscript again before it is published Decisions 2. Minor Revision: The manuscript is suitable for publication but needs some minor adjustments before publication. These could include textual revisions and the inclusion of details or data that I am confident are already in the authors possession. Following this decision, PLoS ONE expects to

receive a revised manuscript very soon, which will be passed to me to check that what I requested has been performed. The expectation would be that this revised manuscript will be accepted. 14 Decisions 3. Major Revision: The most challenging decision to make. It should be used when a manuscript has potential to be published

but is lacking in some major way, usually experimental. Following this decision, I would expect the authors to take some time to produce a revised version, which I will need to fully scrutinize again before making a further decision. 15 Decisions 4. Rejection:

Rejection implies that the papers as submitted is not appropriate for publication in any journal and that I do not anticipate that the study can be revised to make it so. Journal Requirements A Happy Life
