Since the launch of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in 2015, major progress has been made to improve human health and wellbeing across the world: reducing maternal mortality rates, extending life expectancy, fighting communicable diseases, and increasing access to universal healthcare. Despite these impressive advances, progress needs to continue to accelerate in order to meet the ambitious third Global Goal from the United Nations: to ensure healthy lives and wellbeing for all, at all ages, by 2030. So how can F1000Research help?
F1000Research is the perfect publishing venue for your research across all aspects of medicine and human health, including epidemiology, pharmacology, psychology, and healthcare policy and practice. With rapid publication as standard, your article could be published in as few as 14 days: perfect for fast-paced fields of study, where immediate access to robust science is crucial for informing public health responses in real time. All articles on F1000Research are published openly, ready to be read, cited and used by anyone, anywhere. Plus, all articles undergo rigorous, transparent, post-publication peer review, with expert reviews freely available for anyone to read.
Combined with our progressive Open Data Policy, this unique publication model makes F1000Research the ideal home for research with the potential to make a real impact on human health and wellbeing.

Why publish on F1000Research?
Accelerate the impact of your research
With rapid, open publication as standard on F1000Research, you could see your article published in as few as 14 days, meaning your research can make an impact sooner. This is particularly relevant for fast-paced fields of study, such as infectious diseases and epidemiology, where immediate access to robust research is essential for informing clinical and public health responses. All articles are published openly, so anyone can read, cite and use your work – including policymakers, practitioners, NGOs and fellow researchers.
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 Notes, Software 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 Disease Outbreaks Gateway, iDSI Gateway, or TDR Gateway.
F1000Research is a fully open access publishing platform, offering rapid publication of articles and other research outputs without editorial bias. All articles benefit from transparent post-publication peer review, and editorial guidance on making source data openly available.
F1000Research advocates for transparency and reproducibility in research, and our unique publishing model supports this at every stage. Articles can be published in as few as 14 days, with post-publication peer review creating an open dialogue between authors and their research community.
Spotlight on the Disease Outbreaks Gateway
The Disease Outbreaks Gateway brings together all content published on the F1000Research platform relating to global disease outbreaks, so that critical information about outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics is easily accessible.
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, a new area of the Gateway has been created to expedite the publication and dissemination of relevant research outputs – including Research Articles, Software Tool Articles, Brief Reports, and more.
Strengthening the core health research capacity of national health systems helps build country resilience to epidemics: a cross-sectional survey [version 2; peer review: 4 approved]
R Zachariah, D Maher, A Aseffa, M Vahedi, P Launois, M Khogali, G Aslanyan, J Reeder
This Brief Report (featured in both the TDR and Disease Outbreaks Gateways) assesses whether those trained through the TDR PGTS, CRDF and SORT IT training schemes were involved in the COVID-19 response, and in which areas of the emergency response they were applying their skills.
Identification of publicly available data sources to inform the conduct of Health Technology Assessment in India [version 2; peer review: 3 approved]
L Downey, N Rao, L Guinness, M Asaria, S Prinja, A Sinha, R Kant, A Pandey, F Cluzeau, K Chalkidou
Health Technology Assessment (HTA) provides a global, structured approach to synthesizing evidence for cost and clinical effectiveness to inform evidence-based priorities. India has recently committed to institutionalizing HTA in their health resource allocation decision-making process, but effective HTA requires reliable data. This study identifies and assesses publicly available data sources to inform the HTA process in India.
