Partner with us

How can you support your research community as they adopt open practices? At F1000, we partner with forward-thinking institutions to create open research publishing venues that meet researcher needs.

Our Platforms, Gateways, and Collections welcome the submission of all types of original research, including confirmatory results and null studies. Authors can choose from a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional article types to publish at every stage of the research life cycle. Articles are published openly and then undergo post-publication, open peer review. All underlying data supporting the research must be deposited into an open repository.

Empower researchers: Our publishing model provides greater choice, credit, and visibility for authors and reviewers.

Advance knowledge: Our article types support knowledge sharing across all stages of the research lifecycle to increase discovery and build on existing research.

Engage society: Support making research findings rapidly accessible so that knowledge can be used and reused to make real-world impact.

Why partner with F1000?

At F1000, we provide custom publishing solutions for leading research institutions navigating the growing open research landscape. Together, we can:


Improve academic rigor and reproducibility

We publish an ever-expanding range of peer reviewed article types and other essential research outputs, such as policy documents, technical reports, and posters.


Support broader research evaluation and impact reporting

As a signatory to the Declaration of Research Assessment (DORA), we showcase many article-based metrics such as citations, views, downloads, shares, and media mentions to demonstrate impact.


Ensure discoverability for research

Articles that pass peer review are indexed in Scopus and PubMed, where relevant, and Google Scholar to support discoverability and the academic record. All articles benefit from our expertise in Search Engine Optimization (SEO).


Foster trust and confidence in research

Discover a post-publication, fully open peer review model which puts transparency and reproducibility at the center. This model also ensures compliance with funder open access mandates, including PLAN S.


Publish all significant contributions to research

We include a broad range of article-based metrics such as citations, views, downloads, shares, and media mentions.


Accelerate knowledge sharing    

Articles are published rapidly after submission so that other researchers can build on existing findings faster.

Since launching F1000Research in 2013, we have continued to innovate, working closely with researchers and research institutions worldwide to meet their publishing needs and grow their profile in the open research space.
