Faculty 1000 presentation to be held, Apr. 28

F1000PrimeRepresentatives from F1000 will be visiting OHSU on Thursday, April 28, 3 to 4 p.m., Medical Research Building, 310. F1000 acts as a filter, identifying and evaluating significant articles from biomedical research publications. A peer-nominated “Faculty” of scientists and clinicians select and evaluate important papers in their areas of expertise, with the goal of rating research on its own merits rather than according to the prestige or Impact Factor of the journal in which it is published. 92 OHSU faculty members serve as reviewers for F1000 and many OHSU articles have been recommended and endorsed. F1000 Prime is digital platform that provides ratings of and commentary on scientific research papers. F1000 also includes an open access publishing platform, F1000 Research, for sharing slides, posters, and articles.

Join us this Thursday to learn more about using F1000 to navigate the scientific literature and communicate your work.  The OHSU Library provides access to and manages the University’s F1000 subscription, which is available to all OHSU faculty, students, and staff.
