Faculty of 1000
Faculty of 1000 is the publisher of four services for life scientists and clinicians.
F1000Prime publishes recommendations of articles in biology and medicine that are written by a faculty of around 5,000 scientists and clinical researchers, assisted by 5,000 associates. The service is global and covers 40 disciplines and around 3,500 journals. Each recommended article is given a star rating and a commentary explaining why the article was chosen.
F1000Trials is a service due to launch in 2013 that will identify and evaluate published clinical trials and systematic reviews.
F1000Research is an open access journal for life scientists. Articles are published first and peer reviewed after publication. The peer reviewer names and comments are visible on the site. The data behind each article is also published and is downloadable. F1000Research publishes multiple article types including traditional research articles, single findings, case reports, protocols, replications, and null or negative results. The journal has been criticized for unclear peer-review standards.
F1000Posters is an open access repository for posters and slide presentations in biology and medicine.
Faculty of 1000 was founded by publishing entrepreneur Vitek Tracz. The company is part of the Science Navigation Group, which also owns Global DataPoint Ltd, Current BioData Ltd, Wozzon Ltd, and Web of Stories Ltd.
Faculty of 1000 previously existed as two sister sites, F1000 Biology, launched in 2002, and F1000 Medicine, launched in 2006. In 2010, these services were combined as F1000.com. The service was renamed to F1000Prime in 2012.
The Faculty includes 7 Nobel prize winners, 81 fellows of The Royal Society, 12 Lasker Award winners, 146 members of the National Academy of Sciences and 104 members of the Institute of Medicine.
