World's experts identify the hottest trends in biology and medicine
Date:3/3/2009

With the growing volume of online scientific data, a new style of journal offers a digest of the research that will have a direct impact on scientists and clinicians.

The expert-driven article evaluation services, Faculty of 1000 Biology and Faculty of 1000 Medicine, are each launching a journal to complement their award-winning service. The new journals, called F1000 Reports, are unlike existing scientific journals as most of their content has already been filtered for importance by Faculty of 1000's community of over 5,000 of the world's top scientists and clinicians.

F1000 Biology Reports and F1000 Medicine Reports select and highlight the most significant and interesting articles recently evaluated on Faculty of 1000, as well as identify emerging trends within the large F1000 database of articles. In this way, F1000 Reports spot the tips of some new scientific icebergs before they become apparent elsewhere. With so much new literature for scientists and clinicians to read, F1000 Reports are easy routes to the must-read content.

Judith Rapoport, Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and Chief, Child Psychiatry Branch, National Institutes of Health comments "Having respected colleagues summarize the major advances in clinical practice is invaluable. F1000 Medicine Reports furthers the mission of F1000, which is revolutionizing global medical literacy".

Charles Stevens, Professor and Vincent J. Coates Chair in Molecular Neurobiology at the Salk Institute, adds: "F1000 Reports is the logical extension to F1000 in that it identifies hot themes based on hot papers".

The rise of online publishing has given academics a completely new platform for publishing their findings, which has been beneficial in some respects but has also contributed greatly to doctors' and scientists' sense of information overload. With human community-driven filtering, Internet users can get straight to the best online content. Faculty of 1000 has added a new level to this model with the launch of F1000 Reports.
