F1000Research is F1000's new open access publishing program that offers immediate publication followed by a thorough and completely open peer review process, executed after publication. Following recent approval by the National Library of Medicine (NLM)'s Selections group, all articles that pass this peer review process will now be listed in PubMed and deposited within PubMed Central.
F1000Research's acceptance by the NLM Selections group follows agreements confirmed with Elsevier in 2012 for the indexing of F1000Research articles in Scopus and Embase.
