F1000Research, the First Open Science Publisher, Launches Following a Successful Beta Testing Phase


F1000Research comes out of beta today, launching on a new publishing platform.

London, United Kingdom, January 10, 2013 --(PR.com)-- F1000Research is F1000's new Open Science publishing program for life scientists, offering researchers for the first time: immediate publication; transparent and fast peer review post-publication; and full data deposition and sharing.

After receiving extensive support from the scientific community during its six-month beta testing phase, F1000Research now marks its official launch with a new custom-built site, and takes on a stronger identity with its burnt orange branding. "We have been delighted by the response we have received since our beta launch last July, especially from authors and referees," said Dr Rebecca Lawrence, Publisher of F1000Research. "Many of those who have already published with us are now submitting further papers," she added.

F1000Research's unique combination of immediate publication followed by very fast and transparent full peer review makes it extremely attractive, especially for authors who need to publish quickly to support grant applications or who want to prevent having their work being scooped by others.

Submissions have come from around the globe and report on research supported by some of the world's largest and most respected funding bodies, including the NIH, Wellcome Trust, WHO, NIHR, CORDIS, CNRS, NERC, and the Canadian Institutes for Health.

Some 200 of the most eminent names in biology and medicine have joined F1000Research's international Advisory Panel (see the full listing at http://f1000research.com/advisory-panel) and more than 1000 global experts sit on the Editorial Board (see http://f1000research.com/editorial-board).
