Faculty of 1000 is a new online research service that highlights and reviews the most interesting papers published in the biological sciences based on the recommendations of a faculty of well over 1000 selected leading researchers. It also:

  • provides scientists with a continuously updated insider's guide to the most important papers within any given field of research
  • highlights papers on the basis of their scientific merit rather than the journal in which they appear
  • offers an immediate rating of individual papers by the authors' peers, and an important complement to the indirect assessment provided by the journal impact factor.
  • offers the researcher a consensus of recommendations from well over 1000 leading scientists
  • systematically organizes and evaluates the mass of information within scientific literature
  • is searchable
  • linked to PubMed and PubMed Central; and full-text links are included for all papers from BioMed Central journals.

Subject coverage:
Biochemistry; bioinformatics; biotechnology; cell biology; chemical biology; developmental biology; evolutionary biology; genomics & genetics; immunology; microbiology; molecular biology; molecular medicine; neuroscience; plant biology; structural biology
