Just published your Research Article? Why stop there?
Visibility and openness of research is essential for academic development and discovery. As well as the traditional Research Article, F1000Research offers a range of alternative publishing formats, including Brief Reports, allowing you to gain credit for each step of your research journey.
Brief Reports are a highly flexible article type, suitable for many different kinds of research output, including:
The versatility of a Brief Report goes beyond what you can publish to when you can publish. There are several stages within the research journey when a Brief Report could be published, including:
In the early stages of your research journey, you may conduct preliminary studies or gather smaller findings that, traditionally, would be hidden away within supplementary materials. A Brief Report allows you to report on these valuable research outputs, awarding you with a citable publication and enabling others to easily reuse your findings.
Publishing a Brief Report during the collection stage of your project allows you to analyse a subset of the data and validate it.
If you have already published a Research Article using your data, following it up with a Brief Report is a great way to increase the visibility of your findings and data that fell outside the scope of the Research Article.
Publishing a Brief Report with an F1000Research offers several benefits for you and the wider research community.
