Thinking Together provides information about how F1000 is working with research communities internationally to progress the opportunities of open research and tackle the challenges to open research adoption.

Our Open Thinking ambassador program aims to engage with open research advocates around the world who are enthusiastic users of the F1000 publishing model or open science practices in general. Through the program, the ambassadors will turn their passion into practices that benefit the wider open research community.
