Open publishing solutions for research organizations

F1000 partners with research organizations of all shapes and sizes, delivering open research publishing solutions that drive impact and innovation. Discover a suite of partnership options designed to bring the benefits of open research to your community through a trailblazing publishing model, combining rapid, open access to a wide range of outputs, with rigorous post-publication peer review.

How we support research organizations

We partner with institutions, societies, and associations around the world to create high quality, open research publication venues that meet their researchers’ needs. Current partners include University College London, the Association for Medical Education in Europe, the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), Max Planck Society, The University of Tsukuba, and more.
Our range of bespoke and ready-made publishing solutions welcome the submission of all types of original research, including confirmatory and negative results, and null studies.
By offering a wide range of peer reviewed article types, we enable publication at every stage of the research life cycle – delivering greater return on investment for you, and the opportunity for your researchers to tell the full story of their work through a range of outputs.

Empower researchers: Our publishing model provides credit and visibility for authors and reviewers, and maximizes opportunities for collaboration.

Advance knowledge: We offer article types to support all stages of the research journey, so more of that research can be discovered and built on.

Engage society: We make research findings rapidly accessible so that knowledge can be used and reused with real-world impact.

Why partner with F1000?

At F1000, we listen to what institutions, societies, associations, and researchers need.
