Note: The impact score shown here is equivalent to the average number of times documents published in a journal/conference in the past two years have been cited in the current year (i.e., Cites / Doc. (2 years)). It is based on Scopus data and can be a little higher or different compared to the impact factor (IF) produced by Journal Citation Report. Please refer to the Web of Science data source to check the exact journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

PLoS ONE features reports of original research from all disciplines within science and medicine. By not excluding papers on the basis of subject area, PLoS ONE facilitates the discovery of the connections between papers whether within or between disciplines.
PLoS ONE is a journal covering the technologies/fields/categories related to Multidisciplinary (Q1). It is published by Public Library of Science. The overall rank of PLoS ONE is 5222. According to SCImago Journal Rank (SJR), this journal is ranked 0.852. SCImago Journal Rank is an indicator, which measures the scientific influence of journals. It considers the number of citations received by a journal and the importance of the journals from where these citations come.

*Acceptance rates are calculated from submission cohorts and are therefore only available with delay
The acceptance rate/percentage of any academic journal/conference depends upon many parameters. Some of the critical parameters are listed below.
It is essential to understand that the acceptance rate/rejection rate of papers varies among journals. Some Journals considers all the manuscripts submissions as a basis of acceptance rate computation. On the other hand, few consider the only manuscripts sent for peer review or few even not bother about the accurate maintenance of total submissions. Hence, it can provide a rough estimation only.
The best way to find out the acceptance rate is to reach out to the associated editor or to check the official website of the Journal/Conference.
