How funders and publishers can help researchers choose open research
“The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funds lifesaving research related to global health, infectious diseases, drug discovery, agriculture and education.
When conducting research in these areas it is paramount that scientists can disseminate their findings without barrier or restriction, and this is especially crucial during public health emergencies – as we have seen with the global COVID pandemic.”Ashley Farley
“The vision behind F1000 has always been to develop approaches to scholarly publishing that better support the needs of today in communicating new findings, regardless of output format.
We started with article-based formats, but as we expand into different disciplines, we have long been keen to apply similar thinking and benefits to other formats that better suit other scholarly communities such as books and monographs.
Our close relationship with Taylor & Francis provided an opportunity to utilize our technology to rethink the benefits that books can provide to authors and users alike.”Rebecca Lawrence
