How F1000 can help
F1000 fosters a culture of innovation to accelerate the reach of knowledge and put it in the hands of those who will shape the future. We partner with research organizations that want to do things differently, to empower researchers, advance knowledge and engage society. F1000 provides open research publishing solutions and services to organizations such as the European Commission, Wellcome, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as directly to researchers through our F1000Research platform.
F1000Research is an open research publishing platform for scientists, scholars and clinicians that aims to achieve just that – the rapid and citable, openly available publication of articles and other research outputs without access restrictions or rejections based on editorial biases.
In addition to rapid, transparent publication for researchers on F1000Research.com, F1000 partners with funders and institutions worldwide, such as the Wellcome Trust, the Gates Foundation and the European Commission, to develop branded, end-to-end open research publishing solutions. These Platforms feature low-cost Article Processing Charges (APCs), a simple, one-page submission process and transparent post-publication peer review. F1000 also elevates the status and discovery of other research outputs, including data sets, posters, and related materials.
Aligning with the shift towards open science, an F1000 Platform maximizes the potential for research use and reuse by:
- Accelerating access, reach and impact
- Enabling reproducibility and reducing research waste (an important issue for funders)
- Supporting early career researchers, and allowing them to share their work easily
- Employing responsible, comprehensive article-based metrics
In addition to Platforms, F1000 also offers Gateways which are dedicated, branded research hubs on the F1000Research platform for institutions or other scientific communities to showcase their researchers’ publication output with rapid publication, transparent peer review and immediate discoverability through F1000Research.
