Why F1000?


Our mission

We foster a culture of innovation to accelerate the reach of knowledge and put it in the hands of those who will shape the future.


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.

Our publishing model

1. Article submission

Authors submit their work via a single-page submission system. The in-house editorial team carries out a rigorous check on each submission to ensure that all policies are adhered to.

2. Publication & data deposition

Once the authors have finalized the manuscript, the article is published within a week, enabling immediate viewing and citation.

3. Open peer review & user commenting

Expert reviewers are selected and invited. Their reports and names are published alongside the article, together with the authors’ responses and comments from registered users.

4. Article revision

Authors are encouraged to publish revised versions of their article. All versions of an article are linked and independently citable. Articles that pass peer review are indexed in external databases such as PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar.
