What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

I think of the idea of WebmedCentral is excellent. It makes sense in publications with practical and uncomplicated process of scientific production, which is highly important for speed up the scientific contribution in today's world. The idea seems to me is out of the box which gathering whole scientific community at one platform. The new era of publication open ways for researchers to spread their quality research work contributions without restrictions.
