The scholarly publishing landscape is undergoing immense changes. New journals, marketing and distribution strategies, peer review processes, and scholarly products are announced each week. Scientific publications have led the way, offering authors alternatives to the traditional publication process. In 2002, Faculty of 1000 started providing post-publication expert review of research articles in biology and medicine. Their most recent venture, a new life sciences journal called F1000Research, combines the community building expertise F1000 developed over the past ten years with innovative processes related to open science and open peer review.
Iain Hrynaszkiewicz, F1000 Outreach Coordinator, spoke with Bonnie J.M. Swoger about his organization’s newest publication, F1000Research, the innovative practices that set it apart and how they will impact faculty and researchers.
