Faculty of 1000 has Expanded its Coverage
Hopefully you were a regular user of Faculty of 1000 Biology – a great way to find out which articles “experts” in various biology fields have evaluated as “exceptional”, “must-reads”, or “recommended”! Faculty of 1000 has recently changed its name (dropped “Biology”) and expanded its subject coverage to include the medical disciplines. So, if you already are receiving alerts from F1000, you may want to revisit it to select additional areas of interest.
Try Faculty of 1000 out at:
You’ll find the main part of F1000 under the Evaluations link:
- Browse by subject area to see newly evaluated papers and those that have high F1000 Article Factors.
- Use the Advanced Search to find articles of particular interest, those published at a particular institution, those rated by a faculty evaluator, or published in a particular journal.
- Of course you’ll also want to see if any of YOUR articles have made it into F1000.
- Be sure to register for a MyF1000 account so you can request regular email alerts based on broad subject areas or your specific searches.
Other sections of F1000 include:
