Faculty of 1000 Biology on trial

The library has access to Faculty of 1000 Biology for a month. F1000 Biology, from BioMedCentral claims to be 'the next generation literature-awareness service that highlights and evaluates the most interesting papers published in the biological sciences, based on the recommendations of a Faculty of over 2000 of the worlds leading researchers'.

F1000 Biology allows you to set up alerts for papers that have been evaluated by researchers from around the world and deemed to be 'exceptional' or 'must read'. There are lists of top ten articles, updated weekly as well as 'Hidden jewels', which are top papers published in lesser known journals.

Log into
F1000 Biology and test it out - please let me know if you think this is a service useful enough to establish a subscription.
