Faculty of 1000 Biology and Medicine merge

Faculty of 1000 Biology and Faculty of 1000 Medicine have merged to become... Faculty of 1000. Our subscription now also includes The Scientist: Magazine of the Life Sciences.

Never heard of Faculty of 1000? Think of it as a panel of experts who manage your information overload by highlighting and reviewing the articles that you really should read. Or the long version of that...

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. Launched in 2002, F1000 was conceived as a collaboration of 1000 international Faculty Members. The remit of our service continues to grow and the Faculty now numbers more than 10,000 experts whose evaluations form a fully searchable resource identifying the best research available. Faculty Members and their evaluations are organized into over 40 Faculties (subjects), which are further subdivided into over 300 Sections. On average, 1,500 new evaluations are published each month; this corresponds to approximately the top 2% of all published articles in the biological and medical sciences.
