"The Open Access model has addressed effectively the issue of inadequate access to research findings. It did not address the major issues around communicating the research finding: the delays in access, the inadequacies of peer review, and the complexities of data publishing. It is up to collaboration between researchers and publishers to come up with a solution, and we are determined to be a part of it."
Vitek Tracz, Chairman and Founder of Faculty of 1000 Ltd
"Many questions remain as we fine-tune F1000 Research to break new ground in scholarly publishing. We therefore invite those working in the bioresearch community, institutions, funders, data centres and repositories, and data mining and informatics groups to join us in open discussion and debate about these many outstanding issues – via the RSS feed or by Twitter: @F1000Research."
Dr Rebecca Lawrence, leading the project at F1000
