New Faculty of 1000 Application Identifies the Best Research in Biology and Medicine Covered in Elsevier's SciVerse(February 16, 2012)
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 02/16/12 -- Faculty of 1000 (F1000), an online service that selects and evaluates articles based on the opinions of global leaders in biology and medicine, today announced the launch of a new application that helps researchers explore the scientific content in biology and medicine included in Elsevier's SciVerse platform.
"The Faculty of 1000 app (http://www.applications.sciverse.com/action/appDetail/298954) now available in SciVerse Applications allows researchers to tap into the collective knowledge of our 10,000 experts to determine which research is essential reading and to find relevant information efficiently," said Jane Hunter, Managing Director, F1000. "With the continued volume growth of published research, the guidance of the F1000 faculty becomes even more essential for researchers."
Once a SciVerse user adds the app, the articles that have been highlighted by the F1000 faculty will display a badge that, when clicked, brings the user to the F1000 evaluation.
"The F1000 application offers another option for researchers to filter information that is relevant to their domain," said Rafael Sidi, Vice President, Application Marketplace and Developer Network at Elsevier. "We look forward to continued collaborations with developers in creating solutions that enhance research efficiency."
SciVerse Applications and the Developer Network provide opportunities for researchers and librarians to collaborate with developers in creating and promoting new applications that improve research workflows. The Developer Network features a growing community of application developers that gain potential recognition, prestige and revenue through their contributions to SciVerse Applications.
