Richard Smith, former editor of the BMJ, describes an interesting new biomedical journal called F1000Research.
F1000Research, will post papers, including opinion pieces and case reports as well as clinical trials and other studies, within hours of them being submitted. If a study includes data then the authors must make it available—as the BMJ is now insisting on for clinical trials. With F1000Research the data will be available through the website. The data are citable, and the creators of the data will be credited when their data are used for new studies.
Sounds excellent. I wonder if this kind of thing will catch on in climatology?
