It's official. . .I have just accepted an invitation to join the editorial board for the on-line, open access journal PLoS ONE. With its recent burst of vertebrate paleontology articles (featured prominently in their Paleontology Collection), the future is looking quite bright. I am very eager to assist the open access movement in a more concrete way, for a journal that is making many positive changes to the way research is communicated. Other vertebrate paleontologists on the editorial board include Tom Kemp, Paul Sereno, and David Unwin (and my apologies to anyone else I neglected to mention).
So. . .bring on the manuscripts!
