Faculty 1000 today announced F1000 Research, a new fully Open Access publishing program across biology and medicine, that will start publishing later this year. The default open access license is CC-BY, and CC0 for data.
Important features include:
- immediate publication
- open, post-publication peer review
- revisioning of work
- raw data repository
- article format and content is not predefined
My main question about F1000 Research: is this a preprint archive similar to ArXiv and Nature Precedings? I’m a big fan of preprint archives, and I think that – contrary to what most people think – they should work particularly well for clinical trial data.
