Preprints are the version of a research paper shared prior to peer review and publication in a journal. While preprints make the latest research available more quickly, their growing use in sharing findings ahead of peer review has added to concerns about the potential for dissemination of misinformation.

Part of Taylor & Francis, F1000 publishes a range of established open research publishing platforms, with partners including the Gates FoundationWellcomethe European Commission and more. The F1000 team will use its expertise in pre-publication checks, developed over the past 11 years, to verify each VeriXiv submission...."
