Day 4 – F1000Prime (Discovery)


F1000Prime – the most effective personalized literature service  for biological sciences and medicine (excluding librarians, of course!)

F100Prime is a literature discovery tool from the Faculty of 1000 (F1000).  Serving primarily life scientists, F1000 is composed of 5,000 senior scientists, leading experts, and faculty members in all areas of biology and medicine.  F100Prime help yous discover literature from a powerful algorithm that suggests articles relevant to your research and recommended by the F1000 members. The Faculty recommends the most important articles, rating them and providing short explanations for their selections.

In addition to article recommendations (searchable or browsable by faculty or field), it provides article rankings from ‘top 10’ to ‘most viewed’ to ‘hidden jewels’.   Test the free trial and let us know what you think.

BONUS! F1000 supports other research phases too! F1000Research is a suite of tools for writing, collaborating, and reference management, and F1000Workspace is an open science publishing platform with transparent peer review.   Check them out!
We’re going to close out the discovery tools week tomorrow with a new way to use a familiar tool…
