"Open Access effectively addressed the issue of providing unrestricted access to published research for everyone, but it did not deal with the painful issues resulting from anonymous refereeing systems, significant delays to publication, missing data sets, and the limitation of what journals traditionally want to publish," said Vitek Tracz, CEO and founder of F1000. "The publishing approach we developed - we call it Open Science publishing - tries to address these issues. Its benefits to biomedical research will be enormous, and will enable us to make Open Science publishing the new reality."
F1000Research is exhibiting at this year's Experimental Biology conference in Boston from April 20-24. The journal is also hosting an onsite event on April 22 at which the principles of Open Science Publishing will be discussed with a renowned panel of speakers from the scientific community, including Vitek Tracz - a founding supporter of the Open Access publishing movement.
