    How does that compare, in absolute terms and relative to total number of papers published in the same year, with other journals?

    We will publish 6,800 articles this year, so it is 120/6,800 = 2% (approx). It isn’t clear what you would consider to be a competitive title, but for example PNAS appears to have about 460 evaluations in F1000 this year.

    Thanks for the extra data! Good point about appropriate comparison journals being hard to choose.
