Open Access Journals

Faculty of 1000


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.  This is a subscription service that SJSU Library does not yet subscribe to.  Individuals can sign up for a free trial.

The open access F1000 Reports journals add an extra dimension to F1000, providing unique, peer-reviewed reports on emerging themes in biology and medicine. F1000 Section Heads ensure coverage of the latest advances by selecting topics and nominating experts to provide context for the evaluated literature. The journals are indexed and/or abstracted by PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, Embase, Global Health and CAB Abstracts.

F1000 Research is an open access repository of conference posters, research articles and reviews, from across the life sciences and medicine.

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.
