"Four PLOS Authors Receive 2016 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences"

PLOS has released "Four PLOS Authors Receive 2016 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences."

Here's an excerpt:

This year, four of the five scientists awarded a $3 million Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences chose to publish some of their work in Open Access journals over the course of their careers. In so doing, Edward S. Boyden, Karl Deisseroth, John Hardy and Svante Pääbo ensure their research is available for distribution, discovery and reuse, introducing opportunities for all scientists to build on their discoveries.

Collectively, the four PLOS authors and Breakthrough Prize winners have published 55 articles in PLOS journals: 35 articles in PLOS ONE, nine articles in PLOS Genetics, eight articles in PLOS Biology and three articles in PLOS Computational Biology. They've also rocked out to the tunes of Pharrell Williams in an Oscar-style ceremony.
