Faculty of 1000 Biology Reaches 45,000 Evaluations!

If you've not yet signed up for an account on Faculty of 1000 Biology, you really owe it to yourself to do so! Senior faculty select significant / controversial articles for inclusion in F1000 Biology, and comment on the relevance of the article. You can browse / search F1000 for articles in your research area. And be sure to sign up for email alerts so you can see keep up with the "hot" papers in your area!

Here's a recent news bulletin about F1000 Biology --- If you haven't already, check it out!

Faculty of 1000 Biology is pleased to announce the publication of its 45,000th evaluation! More than 33,000 distinct papers have now been evaluated on the site (since its launch in 2002) and these have come from over 1100 different journals, thereby fulfilling the aim of Faculty of 1000 Biology to highlight papers on the basis of their scientific merit rather than the journal in which they appear.

The 45,000th evaluation was submitted by Michael Ehlers (University of Chicago, USA), a Faculty of 1000 Biology Member for Neuroscience, who selected a paper from Nature Neuroscience by Kee et al. that "provides compelling evidence that new granule cells of the adult rodent hippocampus born 1-2 months earlier are preferentially active during spatial memory tasks." [see full evaluation]

Identifying evaluations in your areas of interest on the Faculty of 1000 Biology site couldn't be easier -- use 'Advanced Search' to find your papers by author, title, keywords or by F1000 factor -- so there's no need to read all 45,000 evaluations... unless you want to of course!
