Faculty of 1000: post-publication peer review
The core service of Faculty of 1000 (F1000) identifies and evaluates the most important articles in biology and medical research publications. The selection process comprises a peer-nominated global 'Faculty' of the world's leading scientists and clinicians who rate the best of the articles they read and explain their importance.
Launched in 2002, F1000 was conceived as a collaboration of 1000 international Faculty Members. Although the name stuck, the remit of the service continues to grow and the Faculty now numbers more than 10,000 experts whose evaluations form a fully searchable resource identifying the best research available. Faculty Members and their evaluations are organized into over 40 Faculties (subjects), which are further subdivided into over 300 Sections.
On average, 1500 new evaluations are published each month; this corresponds to approximately the top 2% of all published articles in the biological and medical sciences.
Portland Press Limited has reached an agreement with F1000 to make available each month three evaluations of articles from Cell Biology International from the F1000 website. These evaluations help to put the articles in context and provide opinion and perspective from leading researchers working in the field. In addition, we will include the F1000 Factor beside articles that have been evaluated by F1000 from Cell Biology International - highlighting how many of the Journal's articles have been selected and rated as important by the F1000 service.
