Fast, open-science publishing for biology and medicine
January 31, 2012
(Credit: Faculty of 1000)
The Faculty of 1000 (F1000) has announced an experiment in online
science publishing aimed at sharing research results widely and
rapidly, Nature News Blog reports.
Unlike ArXiv, it will use open peer review to check postings
afterwards and will charge for submissions.
The F1000 Research project begins publishing later this year, covering
biology and medicine. It will accept any format of work (posters, data
tables, discursive speculation based on preliminary results, raw data
sets and protocols, for example) after an “initial sanity check.”
It encourages authors to keep revising and updating what they have
published. And by default, it will use open publishing licenses,
allowing others to share and remix posted research (with attribution).
