The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health with F1000 launched a platform for rapid, author-led publication and open peer review of any research focusing on child health.
The F1000 Gateway, UCL Child Health Open Research, was launched in 2018 and built and supported by F1000, a provider of a suite of services to support researchers, institutions and funders and will enable the publication of child health research from University College London (UCL) with greater speed and transparency.
Any author affiliated with UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health as well as any other UCL resercher studying child health will be able to use the F1000 Gateway to publish any research or data they wish to share. The platform will use the same model that has been established for F1000Research and Wellcome Open Research.
