The Future of Scholarly Publishing Channel on F1000Research: Giving Researchers Credit for their work!

This channel includes articles on relevant topics around the developments in scholarly publishing. Posters, slides, data and articles submitted to this channel are published immediately, fully citable and assigned a permanent DOI after an editorial check.

Researchers have too much to do, and too much of their work goes unrecognized. Tools like  F1000Research will help to take the friction out of their daily lives and help them to share, improve and get credit for their work.  F1000Research blends the best of recent innovations with “traditional”, collegiate academic culture.

In particular, F1000Research is an original Open Science publishing platform for life scientists that offers immediate Open Access publication, transparent post-publication peer review by invited referees, and full data deposition and sharing.

F1000Research accepts all scientifically sound articles, including single findings, case reports, protocols, replications, null/negative results, and more traditional articles.

With the inclusion of posters and slides, it is obvious that F1000Research is not a “journal” in the traditional sense, but truly a publishing platform.

The Future of Scholarly Publishing Channel

is one of the 109 channels hosted currently by the F1000Research platform improving/enhancing the ways in which researchers share scientific results along with today's technological advances.

The Future of Scholarly Publishing Channel includes articles, research notes, correspondence, posters and slides drawing awareness to  relevant topics around the developments in scholarly publishing such as peer review, the use of impact metrics in research assessment, reproducibility, scientific culture and the mechanisms by which scientific knowledge is disseminated and assessed.

An article remains published regardless of the referees’ reports. Articles that pass peer review are indexed in PubMed and other bibliographic databases.

Authors are encouraged to respond openly to the referee reports, which are published with the article, and can publish revised versions of their article at no further cost, if they wish.

Last but not least: all your submissions could be tracked via My Research.
