Intro to “Health Open Research” (an F1000 platform) [April 25, 2023]

On this webinar HRA Members learned about Health Open Research  (launched by F1000 in November 2022*)  which is built on an existing collaboration with the AMRC, and welcomes submissions from all researchers (including those funded by HRA member organizations!) in health, medical and social care research. Utilizing F1000’s unique open research publishing model, the Platform provides a dedicated space for researchers to publish all their research findings openly, in a way that helps to minimize duplication and waste, and maximize the potential for real world impact and advancing scientific discovery.

We also heard from Ashley Farley, from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation about Gates Open Research.  Gates Open Research is a platform for the rapid, author-led publication of research funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, using the same F1000 platform.
