PLoS Moves Up (yet) Another Gear

As of today, it has now been announced >> (in writing) << in the public domain that this year, PLoS ONE, is "soon to become the world's largest (STM - Ed) journal"

In part, here's the word on the webz from PLoS:-

"We need to move because we've simply outgrown our existing location. With the rapid growth of PLoS ONE (soon to become the word's largest journal) and the increasing volume of articles sent to PLoS following the NIH mandate (with hopefully more to come if the Federal Research Public Access Act becomes law), we need to get ready to expand even more".

As a layperson who is totally supportive of Open Science related issues, this is a most welcome development on many levels.
