F1000 Special Collection for World TB Day 2018

F1000Research Special Collection for World TB Day 2018

We are excited to announce that F1000 will be supporting a special collection of manuscripts for the UCL-LSHTM World TB Day 2018 meeting.

Read more about the F1000Research publishing model here. This blog post from the F1000 describes why they have established the publishing model this way.

Briefly, the F1000Research model is based on ‘post-publication invited open peer review’. Submissions go through editorial checks and the article is published as a ‘Version 1’, with its own DOI. At that stage it’s similar to a preprint. It is live, open access and can be cited (but the citation details makes it clear it is awaiting peer review).

Publication of ‘Version 1’ then triggers the peer-review process. Authors suggest the reviewers and F1000Research check the reviewer suggestions. Reports are checked when  submitted and published with the manuscript. When at least 2 reviewers report on an article it is considered as ‘peer review complete’. If the article passes peer review then it is indexed in places like PubMed and Scopus.

Article types: As well as standard articles for Original Research, F1000Research also publish Research Notes, case reports, study protocols, data notes, method articles etc. F1000Research also strongly encourages the publication of null/negative findings. All of the article types are listed here.
