Scientific Reports is an online open access scientific mega journal published by the Nature Publishing Group, covering all areas of the natural sciences. On 23rd August 2016, a blog post on the Scholarly Kitchen mentioned that the journal is likely to become the biggest one in the world, overtaking PLOS ONE. 
Abstracting and indexing
Scientific Reports is abstracted and indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE and the Science Citation Index. According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal's impact factor has increased from 2.927 in 2012 to 5.228 in 2015.
Scientific Reports has been described as a mega journal, conceptually similar to PLoS ONE, based on article processing charges and a peer review model emphasizing scientific quality, rather than perceived impact. In 2015, an editor resigned from Scientific Reports  when the journal introduced a trial of a fast-track peer-review service for biology manuscripts in exchange for an additional fee.
