F1000 – Database

A new  Database  F1000 is now available for all NTU staffs and students.

Faculty of 1000 (F1000) identifies and recommends the important articles in biomedical research publications. Articles are selected by a peer-nominated global ‘Faculty’ of the  leading scientists and clinicians who then rate them and explain their importance.

Launched in 2002, F1000 was conceived as a collaboration of 1000 international Faculty Members.

Faculty Members and article recommendations are organized into over 40 Faculties (subjects), which are further subdivided into over 300 Sections.
