F1000 is off to sunny California for the Biophysical Society Meeting

23 Feb 2016

It’s been a long winter and although Mother Nature has started warming up this floating blue marble (for the northern hemisphere at least), we are eager to hit the road in search of a warmer climate, sans winter coats. In support of F1000Workspace – our exclusive user-friendly software that helps with writing, collaborating, reference management and manuscript preparation – we will be visiting the Los Angeles area in time for the 60th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society.

If you’re attending, make sure to stop by Booth 209 and say hi – my colleague Tiago Barros and I promise to wow you with what we’ve been cooking up over the last few months, including our brand new Google Docs Add-on. Naturally there will also be a bunch of conference goodies up for grabs so there is no excuses not to drop by!

If you are not using F1000Workspace yet, here are a few of the many reasons it’ll be the only tool you will want to use from now on:

  • Manage your references from anywhere in the world. It’s all stored in the cloud, so you can access them from the lab, your home, even the beach!
  • Save, highlight and comment on references via the web or PDF via our web browser plugin and access these notes directly from Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
  • Automate reference discovery with the use of one of our many smart algorithms – never miss an important citation again!
  • Collaborate on sharing references and building bibliographies with your colleagues and collaborators, regardless of where they are located.
  • Share your manuscripts and request feedback from your collaborators via your Workspace.
  • Avoid submission headaches! Submit to F1000Research with the click of a button and take advantage of the fastest, most advanced publishing platform, built specifically for life scientists.

We have created a series of short walkthrough videos that highlight and explain the features above. See here and here for more.

Hope to see you all in sunny California!
