In February 2014, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) announced the decision to launch Science Advances as a way to “expand the…content of Science” (science.sciencemag.org/content/343/6172/709.full). The new publication was envisioned as a multidisciplinary, open-access, digital-only journal, edited by a team of scientists actively engaged in research. The first Science Advances papers were published within a year. Now, nearly three-and-a-half years later, Science Advances is soon to publish its 2000th paper—a good time to examine how the journal is fulfilling its founding vision.
