In the next 2 weeks we will share and discuss the results of the year 2011. The most significant discoveries in stem cell research, the most notable events in cell therapy. Don’t miss it!

I continue to share the most highly ranked articles in stem cell research by Faculty Members of post-publication peer review platform Faculty of 1000. Today, I’m sharing the most highly ranked stem cell papers of 2011. Once again, the articles ranked by Faculty Members according F1000 factors (FFa) system. The higher the FFa, the higher the ranking, and the better the paper.

FFa=20
Sean C. Bendall, at al. Single-cell mass cytometry of differential immune and drug responses across a human hematopoietic continuum (Science. 2011 May 6; 332(6030):687-96) read evaluations

FFa=20
Guttman M, at al. lincRNAs act in the circuitry controlling pluripotency and differentiation (Nature. 2011 Sep 15; 477(7364):295-300) read evaluations

FFa=18
Mototsugu Eiraku, at al. Self-organizing optic-cup morphogenesis in three-dimensional culture (Nature. 2011 Apr 7; 472(7341):51-6) read evaluations

FFa=16
Faiyaz Notta, at al. Isolation of single human hematopoietic stem cells capable of long-term multilineage engraftment (Science. 2011 Jul 8; 333(6039):218-21) read evaluations

FFa=15
Pengyu Huang, at al. Induction of functional hepatocyte-like cells from mouse fibroblasts by defined factors (Nature. 2011 Jul 21; 475(7356):386-9) read evaluations

FFa=15
Jason R. Spence, at al. Directed differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells into intestinal tissue in vitro (Nature. 2011 Feb 3; 470(7332):105-9) read evaluations

I think it’s quite good selection. Two adult stem cell papers, three – embryonic stem /iPS cells, one – direct transdifferentiation, one – methodological advance. Obvious bias of Faculty Members toward “glamour magazines” (Science, Nature, Cell).

The results of previous year you can read here.

NB! During this week all evaluations should be freely available for everyone irrespective to subscription! F1000 will be open to all until January 3rd, 2012. Please use this opportunity!

PS: Despite a great and noble idea, Faculty of 1000 was recently criticized mainly for “only by subscription” access to evaluations. And they responded. Because F1000 will be open to all one more week, please try this platform, learn about papers evaluation and most importantly – discuss the future of open science and post-publication peer review!
