Article ratings and rankings
When Faculty Members recommend an article for F1000Prime, they also write a brief review explaining what makes the article so important and rate it as 'Good', 'Very Good' or 'Exceptional' (equivalent to scores of 1, 2 or 3 stars, respectively). F1000Prime uses the individual scores to calculate the total scores for each article, which are used to rank the articles in each discipline.
F1000Prime ranks articles based on the total number of stars awarded to each recommended article. The more recommendations an article receives and the greater the total number of stars it receives, the higher its ranking will be. You can sort articles by their ranking in F1000Prime or for a quick overview, visit the All Time Top 10s and Current Top 10s, which you can filter by all articles, by biology, by medicine or by any F1000Prime Faculty. We also generate Top 10 lists of Hidden Jewels that include only articles published in specialist journals that you might have missed in your general reading, and Most Viewed lists to enable you to see what your fellow readers are interested in.
Current Top 10 lists are compiled daily and include articles recommended within the preceding 14 days.
