What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

This is a very smart idea to offer the possibility to researcher publish their works. I noticed that the number of people doing research in the field of Biomechanics is increasing. Nevertheless, the number of journals is the same. In addition, younger generation of researchers are making innovative works but old generation who control the existing journals and who act as reviewers reject lot of interesting works (conflict of interest)
