I am trying to plot the y-axis value as a percent form. By using PercentForm for the Ticks which I followed Changing tick labels to percent, I can plot the y-axis in percent. However, this approach only works when I do not specify the "Frame->True". Can anybody explain this to me? Thanks

You need to use the option FrameTicks instead of Ticks:

ticks = {#, ToString[PercentForm[#]]} & /@ Range[0, 1, .1];

Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}, 
  FrameTicks -> {{ticks, Automatic}, {Automatic, Automatic}}, 
  Frame -> True]

enter image description here

Alternatively, modify the labels of automatically-generated major ticks:

tickF = Charting`ScaledTicks["Linear"][##] /.
  {a_, _NumberForm, b___} :> {a, ToString @ PercentForm[a], b} &;

Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}, 
 FrameTicks -> {{tickF, Automatic}, {Automatic, Automatic}}, 
 Frame -> True]

enter image description here
