Faculty of 1000 praised by Wellcome Trust
Date:6/22/2009

The Wellcome Trust has used Faculty of 1000 evaluations to monitor the success of their funding support.

To determine whether their grants were being put to good use, the Wellcome Trust analyzed close to a thousand publications resulting from Wellcome-funded projects . They assembled a group of reviewers to assess the merit of these papers, and found that the scores given by their panel of experts agreed with those of Faculty of 1000 evaluations, where available.

In a few cases, both Faculty of 1000 members and the Wellcome Trust experts identified landmark papers that nevertheless did not have an exceptionally high citation score, indicating that the merit of a paper cannot be judged by bibliometric data alone.

The Wellcome Trust points out that "mechanisms such as Faculty of 1000 of post-publication peer review are a valuable additional mechanism for assessment of the quality of biomedical research literature". They recommend using both qualitative expert reviews and quantitative data when assessing the impact of a published paper.
