In celebration of the Tenth Anniversary of PLOS Biology, this collection showcases ten specially selected PLOS Biology research articles, drawn from a decade of publishing excellent science. The articles, which were chosen by PLOS Biology's Editors and Editorial Board, are representative of the high quality research published in the journal over the last decade. The collection also features newly commissioned articles, including thought-provoking pieces on the Open Access movement (past and present), article-level metrics and the history of the Public Library of Science, plus a newly recorded video of PLOS Co-Founder Michael Eisen and PLOS Biology Advisory Board Chair Jonathan Eisen discussing the history and future of the journal and open access.

The ten showcased research articles are accompanied by a series of ten blog posts on Biologue, each highlighting the scientific advance and its significance to the field.
