F1000: 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 our service continues to grow and the Faculty now numbers more than 10000 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.F1000 is a subscription service paid for by academic and corporate institutions. Users at subscribing institutions automatically receive full access to the F1000 service when using internet facilities provided by their institution. Free trials are available for institutions and for individuals who may then recommend the service to the librarian at their institution.
