What is Faculty of 1000 Biology? http://www.f1000biology.com • Subscription only research service • Reviews the most interesting papers published in the biological sciences, based on the recommendations of a faculty of over 1,000 selected leading researchers. • Based on paper’s scientific merit, rather than the journal they appear in • Offers ratings by the author's peers
Why? • Provides scientists with a continuously updatedinsider's guide to the most important papers within any given field of research • Systematically organizes and evaluates the mass of information within scientific literature • Offers an immediate rating of individual papers by the authors' peers, and an important complement to the indirect assessment provided by the journal impact factor.

F1000 Ratings Faculty may assign one of 3 ratings: Recommended, Must Read or Exceptional,
Rating Definitions • “Recommended" Recommended reading for a section (i.e. of specialist interest) (F1000 Biology rating of 3) • "Must read" Must read for more than one subject/section (i.e. of general interest) (F1000 Biology rating of 6) • "Exceptional" A landmark paper representing the top 1% of publications (F1000 Biology rating of 9). The ratings assigned to each paper is then used to calculate its F1000 factor, which also takes into account the number of Faculty members who have picked the same paper.
Ratings – The F1000 Factor • Faculty members assign to each paper they select ratings of Recommended, Must Read or Exceptional, which correspond to F1000 Factors of 3, 6 and 9, respectively. If a paper has more than one evaluation, its F1000 Factor is calculated by the following formula: • F1000 Factor = Mean of Highest Two Scores + (Sum of All Scores/30) • For example, a paper picked by three Faculty members, two give it a rating of Must Read and the third a rating of Exceptional, would give it a F1000 Factor of (6+9)/2 + (6+6+9)/30 = 8.2 This corresponds to an "Exceptional" rating badge.
