What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:


I agree with the philosophy of WMC: "Biomedical publishing in its conventional form needs to evolve. In current times of unlimited publishing capacity, barriers to publishing need to be reduced and every scientist should have an opportunity to contribute. At the same time the present system of review needs to be broadened in its scope to accommodate every comment or criticism of the published work." With WMC's type of publishing, it will get more efficient, unbiased and transparent.
