Free repository of posters from Faculty of 1000

Faculty of 1000 Posters screenshotFaculty of 1000 has created the Open Poster Repository for Biology & Medicine, a free repository of posters from conferences in medicine and the life sciences.  According to the site,

Our aim in building F1000 Posters is to give poster presenters and supporting societies the opportunity to make their work known to a wider audience. It will also enable much greater discussion on new research, hopefully opening up opportunities for new collaborations which will help advance scientific research as a whole. Posters deposited here will be reviewed by our world-renowned Faculty who will select posters that they consider to be particularly interesting and important and write evaluations for inclusion in our award-winning F1000 evaluation service.

There is no charge to access the site or to deposit a poster.

Also, access to the Faculty of 1000 database is available to City of Hope staff and students via the Graff Library’s subscription.  Faculty of 1000 highlights and evaluates papers in biology and medicine that their panel of expert reviewers considers interesting and/or important.  It’s an excellent tool for familiarizing yourself with a new topic or keeping up with the latest, most important work in a subject area.  You can use the My F1000 feature to customize the service for your interests and receive email notifications when new papers are added.  If you would like to learn more about Faculty of 1000, please contact the library.
