[Purposes] This study aims to study the characteristics of source journals of medical papers selected in F5000, and analyze the quality of medical journals according to the index of selected timeliness, which provides data support for scientific journals to improve their quality, and also provides references for medical researchers to select journals and submit papers. [Methods] We downloaded all selected papers from 2012 to 2019 on F5000 platform, screened out the journals that publish medical papers, and analyzed their distribution characteristics. The index of selected timeliness for single paper, journal, and subject was calculated. [Findings] F5000 has included 9514 papers which were published in 163 journals from 2012 to 2019 and belonged to 16 disciplines. The selected timeliness of these papers ranges from 1 to 5 years after published, 10.58% of them are selected 1 year after published, 19.17% of them are selected 2 years after published, and the overall selected timeliness of medical papers is 3.29 years. [Conclusions] The number of selected papers in each journal is directly proportional to the number of included databases, and the selected timeliness of medical journals is higher than the overall level of F5000 papers. The papers from traditional Chinese medicine journals or funded by projects are important sources of F5000 medical papers, so scientific journals can set and use special columns to make an arrangement in advance with the manuscripts to improve the quality of manuscript sources and journal influence. The F5000 platform should also pay attention to domestic SCI journals to expand the coverage of high-level papers and improve the dissemination speed of excellent scientific research output in China.
