    I think the author hasn't got adequate evidence to make that assertion regarding the reason for a drop in publishing output.

    If I remember correctly, PLOS ONE is planning on insisting that researchers openly publish their data, which may have put some/many researchers off publishing with them.

    And I think they've been one of the best journals at spotting fake papers when people have submitted a fake paper to a load of journals to see which have poor quality standards.

    So PLOS ONE's plans for open access to data, and their higher quality peer review and editing, may also have an impact on the number of publications.

    I didn't know it is a non-profit. That's interesting.
