PLoS ONE published its 10000th article

PLoS ONE has just published its 10,000th article!  Since its birth in December 2006, PLoS ONE has put up a formidable competition to the print copy science publishers, and this recent milestone shows that open-access publication of "not so novel and subjective based research" is indeed a viable and scientifically justified project and which enjoys wide support within the academic community. Following the success of PLoS ONE, more such publication projects [including few from PLoS ONE's  vocal critics] have recently mushroomed. It ill be interesting to know how far the new projects will be successful fishing inside the catchment of PLoS ONE. Below is the 10000th PLoS ONE article that appeared on April 2, 2010:
Immunoproteomics Analysis of the Murine Antibody Response to Vaccination with an Improved Francisella tularensis Live Vaccine Strain (LVS) Susan M. Twine, Mireille D. Petit, Kelly M. Fulton, Robert V. House, J. Wayne Conlan Research Article, published 02 Apr 2010  doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0010000
