F1000Prime provides a way to keep up-to-date with research in biological and medical research. Articles are selected by a peer-nominated global ‘faculty’ of the world’s leading scientists and clinicians, who score articles and write a short commentary to explain their importance.
The article recommendations form a fully searchable database containing more than 150,000 records. On average, 1,000 new recommendations are contributed by the Faculty each month. The service covers over 40 disciplines and more than 3,700 journals.
F1000Prime also has a ‘Hidden Jewels’ feature, which highlights important papers in more specialist journals, bringing recognition to journals that may be overlooked if judged purely on readership or Journal Impact Factor alone.
