Public Library of Science is planning a late 2005 launch of a new international peer-reviewed open-access journal, PLoS Clinical Trials, which will publish results of Phase III and late Phase II human clinical trials from all medical and public health disciplines. The journal's main aim is to provide an open-access venue in which all trials, including "negative" ones, which have been conducted ethically, reported appropriately, and registered in an internationally accepted registry, can be published swiftly and in a structured format. Submitted manuscripts will undergo rigorous peer review including statistical review and a summary of the reviews will be published as an integral part of each article.
