Open access and open for discovery.
PLOS transformed research communication with its open-access publishing model. It needed a site that matched its mission and made content easy to search through and view.
Even the most obscure of facts can hold the key to new research. We provided a nuanced and efficient search tool to help users sift through articles and make decisions about what they want to read. We also redesigned article pages to more clearly separate research articles from related content.
The redesigned PLOS site won the 2012 Interactive Media Council Award for Best in Class—Non-profit. It is an innovative reflection of the library's mission: content searches are efficient yet fine-grained so that users can find material quickly and easily.
