Earth and Environmental research underpins many of the greatest challenges facing our world, from climate change and energy access, through to water security and sustainability. Ensuring research outputs and data in this area are open access, rapidly available and reproducible is critical to giving us the best chance to meet these challenges, and to ensuring a more equitable and sustainable future for all.

At F1000Research, we feel strongly about representing a broad range of topics within Earth & Environmental Sciences including but not limited to:

  • Climate and atmospheric science

  • Environmental Engineering

  • Environmental Chemistry

  • Environmental Health

  • Geophysics and Geology

  • Agriculture and Food

F1000Research is the ideal publishing platform for all your Earth & Environmental Sciences research outputs – from traditional Research Articles to more unique formats, such as Software Tool Articles, Policy BriefsData Notes, and Method Articles

Combining this unique publication model with our progressive Open Data Policy makes F1000Research the perfect home for Earth & Environmental Sciences research with the potential to make real-world impact.

Why publish your Earth & Environmental Science research on F1000Research?

Accelerate the impact of your research

Our rapid publication model helps your research make an impact sooner. See your article published in a matter of days, fully citable, and ready for peer review.

Research from all fields welcome to support the 3rd Global Goal

F1000Research welcomes articles from all fields of study relating to wellness and human health, whether your research focuses on the current coronavirus pandemic, mental health, pharmacology – or something else! Articles are published on the platform without editorial bias, so authors (not editors) have control overly the publication of their scholarly outputs.

Reduce research waste

At F1000Research, we believe you should be able to tell the full story of your research and get credit for all your outputs, no matter what format they take. Alongside traditional Research Articles, we also welcome Data NotesSoftware Tool Articles, Method Articles, Study Protocols, and more. We welcome confirmatory and negative results, as well as null studies: all research is suitable irrespective of perceived novelty or interest, meaning no research gets wasted.

Increase the visibility of your research

Once your article has passed peer review, inclusion in Scopus, PubMed, Google Scholar and other major indexers will help it reach more readers. On F1000Research, your article is supported by machine-readable metadata to boost discoverability. And if the scope of your article is right, you could also benefit from featuring your research in one of our dedicated Gateways, such as the Climate Action Gateway or the GODAN Gateway

Research outputs come in many forms. So do our article types.

At F1000Research, we really hate research waste. That’s why we welcome traditional Research Articles describing confirmatory or negative results, and why we publish null studies. It’s also why we offer a range of less traditional publishing formats, so that all forms of research output can get the credit they deserve. 

Software Tool Articles

These articles describe novel software tools created to support or conduct research in any field, including physical sciences. The articles explain:

  • Why the software was developed
  • Details of the code, method, and analysis used
  • Tips on how to maximize the tool’s potential

Software Tool Articles offer research software engineers a great way to get credit for their work, and increase the visibility of their novel software tools so that other researchers can use them too.

Data Notes

Effective data sharing extends way beyond simply depositing your scientific dataset in a repository. Data Notes make your dataset more discoverable, useable and reproducible by providing a detailed description of the data itself – without any analyses or conclusions. This format gives much-needed credit to data producers who often go unrecognized, and could even support new research collaborations across different fields of study.

Method Article

Method Articles describe new and well tested experimental, observational, theoretical or computational methods or procedures, either quantitative or qualitative. This includes new study methods, substantive modifications to existing methods or innovative applications of existing methods to new models or scientific questions. We welcome technical articles that describe tools that facilitate the design or performance of experiments, provide data analysis features or assist medical treatment.
