PLoS Currents is a new publication that aims to minimize the delay between the generation and publication of new research. The content is peer-reviewed, citable, publicly archived, and included in PubMed. By facilitating and accelerating the sharing of new findings and ideas, we hope that PLoS Currents will accelerate the research cycle itself.
