3 OVERVIEW What is F1000Prime? The F1000 Faculty Using F1000Prime F1000Prime rankings MyF1000 F1000Prime Reports Follow F1000 Other services from F1000


5 F1000Prime is an in-depth directory of top articles in biology and medicine, as recommended by our Faculty of over 5,000 expert scientists and clinical researchers, assisted by 5,000 associates. The service covers over 40 disciplines and more than 3,500 journals. Articles are rated and expert commentaries explain their importance.

6 WHAT IS F1000PRIME? Launched in 2002, F1000Prime was conceived as a collaboration of 1,000 international Faculty Members. The name stuck even though the Faculty and remit of the services continues to grow. Faculty recommendations and comments form a fully searchable database, containing more than 145,000 records (as of November 2013), which aims to identify the best research available. On average, 1,500 new recommendations are contributed by the Faculty each month.

7 IN ONE OF OUR USERS WORDS I must say that this is an enormously exciting service. It's like having an entire auditorium full of the best people in the world all sitting in on your weekly journals club! David A. Galbraith Head of Science Royal Botanical Gardens, Hamilton, Canada



10 HOW IS THE FACULTY ORGANIZED? Faculty Section Topic 32 Faculties each with 2-4 Heads of Faculty 5-14 Sections per Faculty each with 2-4 Section Heads Over 200 Sections with circa 5,000 Faculty Members (FMs) and 5,000 Associate FMs

11 WHAT DO THE FACULTY DO? Faculty Members (FMs) together with their Associate Faculty Members (AFMs), recommend, score and classify articles for inclusion in F1000Prime's Article Recommendations. AFMs, who are appointed by individual FMs, also help to scan the tables of contents of all the major general and specialist journals to ensure that the literature in their topic area has been adequately covered. FMs are peer-nominated and appointed by Faculty Section Heads. The Faculty identify approximately the top 2% of all published articles in the biology and medical sciences.


13 The F1000Prime homepage puts personalization central to the experience of using the website. The underlying technology includes a unique algorithm that learns from a users research interests and provides increasingly relevant articles both from the F1000Prime and newly published articles from PubMed. F1000PRIME HOMEPAGE PRE-REGISTRATION

14 Three steps to a personalized homepage: 1. Enter at least three keywords that represent your research interests 2. Select/confirm your relevant sections 3. Register your details and alert preferences to see your personalized homepage REGISTRATION

15 Your F1000Prime homepage is a unique and personal electronic table of contents listing recommended articles from F1000Primes Faculty, along with F1000Prime Reports and relevant articles from PubMed F1000PRIME HOMEPAGE POST-REGISTRATION

16 ARTICLE RECOMMENDATIONS – FEATURES Article recommendations are collated by Faculty and Section (subspecialty), cross-indexed, and tagged – making them easy to search and browse. Faculty Section

17 ARTICLE RECOMMENDATIONS – FEATURES Recommendations are brief, accessible reviews, highlighting the key findings and putting the work into context, accompanied by star ratings. Article Recommendation Faculty Member Smart Search

18 ARTICLE RECOMMENDATIONS – FEATURES All articles in F1000Prime are recommended, but the FMs rate them as either Good (*), Very Good (**), or Exceptional (***). Combined star ratings from multiple recommendations of the same article are used to rank the articles within each Faculty. Star rating Total score No. of recommendations and dissenting opinions

19 ARTICLE RECOMMENDATIONS – FEATURES Features to classify, share, and find related recommendations. Classifications include Changes clinical practice, Good for teaching, Novel drug target, Controversial. Related articles in F1000Prime and PubMed Classification(s) Article links and sharing options



22 ARTICLE RANKINGS All time top ranked and current (last 14 days) top 10 articles. All time most viewed and current (last 14 days) most viewed articles.

23 HIDDEN JEWELS Identifies important articles published in specialist journals, which might otherwise be overlooked.

24 F1000 RECOMMENDATIONS AND RESEARCH ASSESSMENT/IMPACT Research funders including Research Councils UK, the National Science Foundation and Medical Research Council (MRC) increasingly look beyond Journal Impact Factors when assessing research impact. A 2009 study by the MRC concluded that F1000Prime recommendations are an indicator of future citation impact ( The Wellcome Trust published in PLOS ONE an analysis of F1000Prime, finding that expert review highlights important papers that bibliometric indicators alone would miss ( F1000 regularly provides F1000Prime data to researchers working on bibliometrics, research assessment and impact.

25 F1000 SCORES, PUBLISHERS AND BIBLIOGRAPHIC DATABASES F1000Prime recommendation links and/or scores are displayed on a growing number of third party journal/publisher websites, bibliographic databases, and altmetrics services, including: BioMed Central (Springer) PubMed (with F1000Prime link-out enabled) Elseviers SciVerse (using the F1000 app)

26 MYF1000

27 CUSTOMIZING THE EXPERIENCE WITH MYF1000 Features of MyF1000 ( Favorite sections and alerts F1000 SmartSearch F1000Prime recommended articles and/or PubMed articles key word searches (search PubMed through F1000Prime) Saved and followed articles Follow Faculty Members Nominate articles

28 CREATING ALERTS TO FAVOURITE SECTIONS Receive alerts at desired frequency of new recommendations published in your F1000Prime sections of interest. Users have said this is one of the most important features.

29 SMARTSEARCH An intuitive PubMed search tool that learns what type of articles are likely to be most relevant to you. Select five or more articles as seeds and after a few interactions with the results, you will be alerted to the most relevant articles recently published. Covers all of PubMed – not just F1000Prime Results improve over time as SmartSearch learns from your interactions and instructions Good for finding articles in smaller topic areas Seed initial search with any F1000Prime-recommended article with Alerts for similar articles button And/or create SmartSearch from MyF1000 using any paper(s) in PubMed – including your own

30 SMARTSEARCH Initial seed from a recommended article. Add articles manually or pick suggested articles.

31 SMARTSEARCH s received based on seed article(s) and users preferred frequency of alerts. Indicate if suggested papers are relevant or not to help train the SmartSearch further.

32 IN ONE OF OUR USERS WORDS The SmartSearch result I just received was incredibly important. It pointed me to a paper that had just been pre-released, not even on the journals website under the current issue, and the paper was über important for my research findings. In short, the F1000 SmartSearch has been terrific! Stephen Roper Professor of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Miami

33 FOLLOW ARTICLES AND FACULTY MEMBERS Save to MyF1000/Follow button to be alerted to new recommendations of an article, new comments and dissenting opinions. Follow Faculty Members to be alerted to their recommendations, comments and dissenting opinions.

34 FOLLOW FACULTY MEMBERS Collectively manage Followed Faculty Members and followed/saved articles from MyF1000

35 CONTRIBUTE: NOMINATE ARTICLES AND COMMENT ON ARTICLES Articles can be nominated for Faculty Members to consider for recommendation. Use the Nominate an Article box (visible in MyF1000), or from PubMed search results within F1000Prime using the Nominate for inclusion for F1000Prime button. To nominate an article from MyF1000, the PubMed Identifier (PMID) or digital object identifier (DOI) should be submitted. Users can also contribute comments, subject to moderation, on any article recommended in F1000Prime.
