New Reports Journals From Faculty of 1000

Faculty of 1000 (www.f1000.com) has announced that the expert-driven article evaluation services Faculty of 1000 Biology and Faculty of 1000 Medicine are each launching a journal to complement their service. The new journals, called F1000 Reports, are unlike existing scientific journals as most of their content has already been filtered for importance by Faculty of 1000’s community of more than 5,000 of the world’s top scientists and clinicians.

F1000 Biology Reports (www.f1000biology.com/reports) and F1000 Medicine Reports (www.f1000medicine.com/reports) select and highlight the most significant and interesting articles recently evaluated on Faculty of 1000. They also identify emerging trends within the large F1000 database of articles. F1000 Reports are designed to spot the tips of some new scientific icebergs before they become apparent elsewhere. With so much new literature for scientists and clinicians to read, F1000 Reports are easy routes to the must-read content.

The rise of online publishing has given academics a completely new platform for publishing their findings, which has been beneficial in some respects but has also contributed greatly to doctors’ and scientists’ sense of information overload. With human community-driven filtering, internet users can get straight to the best online content. Faculty of 1000 has added a new level to this model with the launch of F1000 Reports.
