Faculty of 1000 is Expanding
Hopefully you’re a regular user of Faculty of 1000 Biology – a great way to find out which articles “experts” in various biology fields are recommending as noteworthy, controversial, or must-reads! You can search F1000 or set up “alerts” to be notified of new article recommendations by subject area or by topical terms of your choosing.
Now we have access to Faculty of 1000 Medicine, too!
The F1000 search interface is in the process of changing so both “F1000Biology” and “F1000Medicine” will be presented in one, unified interface – now called just F1000 or Faculty of 1000. This month we’ll have access to both the old interface, which you’re used to, and also to the Beta version of the new, combined interface for F1000. If you’ve set up alerts previously they will still work but you may want to go into the new Beta interface and update your alerts, as there is now more content. Click here for a pdf listing of the subjects covered by the new F1000.
Along with this, we are also obtaining access to the online version of The Scientist, which was previously published by ISI (Inst. for Scientific Information) but is now produced by the folks at F1000. You can link to The Scientist out of the Beta F1000 by clicking on the link to “Magazine”.
Note: if you bookmark F1000 on campus, use http://f1000.com. The current URL for the Beta version (http://beta.f1000.com) will not be permanent. Use the Library’s URL for accessing F1000 from off-campus.
