F1000 database trial now extended to end of 2010

November 5th, 2010 by Brian Lym

Available on trial now until Dec. 31, 2010

Based on feedback from science faculty here at Hunter, we are extending the trial of this database until the end of 2010.

The Faculty of 1000 describes itself as a “next generation literature awareness tool… that will comprehensively and systematically highlight and review the most interesting papers published in the biological sciences, based on the recommendations of a faculty of well over 1000 selected leading researchers.”   These papers are selected by the faculty themselves–not from a preselected list of journals. You can browse papers within a field, such as biochemistry, cell biology, genomics & genetics, molecular biology and plant biology, or search across all fields. Links to full text articles from Hunter Library databases are provided when available.

How do I access this database?  Go to the Hunter Libraries databases page and select  “Faculty of 1000″

  1. John Carey Says:

    The idea of “post-publication peer review” is a provocative one, especially in an age when researchers are sharing and collaborating online more than ever. It’s also worth noting that despite the name, there are actually something like 10,000 global “faculty”–who have all been nominated by peers–commenting on these articles, so it’s a great base of expertise to draw on.
