All abstracts are published in the July 2011 issue of the Internationl Journal of Tricholohy — www.ijtrichology.com The European Hair Research Society (EHRS) in cooperation with Faculty of 1000 (http://f1000.com/) invites poster presenters at EHRS meetings to deposit their poster(s) following the meetings into the new open access poster repository, F1000 Posters (http://posters.f1000.com/) enabling those who could not make the meeting to see the novel work presented. F1000’s expert Faculty of ~10,000 members will then view these submissions to identify those they wish to select for positive evaluation in the award winning F1000 post-publication peer review service.
