Wiley-Blackwell joins the Faculty of 1000 Affiliate Program

September 16, 2010

Designed to give the scientific community easier access to F1000 evaluations, the F1000 Affiliate Program offers scientific societies and publishers free access to selected evaluations rated by the F1000 Faculty. Existing affiliates include the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), The Royal Society and The Physiological Society.

As an F1000 Affiliate Publisher, Wiley-Blackwell will offer their readers free access to a selection of F1000 evaluations of Wiley-Blackwell journal articles. Several journals published by Wiley-Blackwell, including the FEBS Journal, Journal of Zoology, and New Phytologist, will select up to three F1000 evaluations of articles from their journal which will be posted on the journal's website each month.

F1000 is a unique online service that ranks the top 2% of biomedical articles across an array of specialist fields. Articles are selected by the international F1000 Faculty Members, who have been nominated by their peers as highly respected experts in their chosen fields. The Faculty uses a unique rating system to identify the highest quality papers and give these papers a rating of Recommended, Must Read or Exceptional, which corresponds to F1000 Factors of 3, 6 and 9, respectively.

In addition to enabling free access to F1000 evaluated Wiley-Blackwell journal articles, Wiley-Blackwell will also reproduce the F1000 Factor beside the relevant articles on the journals' websites.

Commenting on the F1000 Affiliate Society and Publisher Program, Melanie Thomson Divisional Marketing Manager, Life Sciences at Wiley-Blackwell said: "The F1000 Affiliate Program enables us to offer our readers expert evaluations of articles published in our journals. We look forward to working with F1000 in the future."

Drawing on the expertise of over 10,000 leading clinicians and researchers, F1000 provides expert commentaries on the latest scientific developments in the fields of Biology and Medicine, not only highlighting the best articles, but explaining why they are important. The F1000 service also features 'Hidden Jewels' - papers from lesser known journals that rank highly among F1000 experts.
