Hot topics in Biology — web resource

The Faculty of 1000 Biology website is a great way for scientists to keep up with the current literature – faculty world-wide select the 'hot' papers and rank and provide commentary on them. So the idea is it's a thousand eyes out there reviewing the literature instead of just yours!
  It's still hard slogging for a science writer but contributing editor Candace Gibson of UWO notes the comments by reviewers are very helpful and do summarize articles in much clearer language.

  "I use this to keep up with current articles for some of my 4th year students and grad students – and even for me the reviews are often what I hit first before reading the paper."
  Faculty of 1000 has a subscription wall but there is a free 3-week trial and a personal subscription costs $125US.
