What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

In the future scientists will have to learn how to communicate more effectively with each other.  We will have to learn to work more collaboratively, especially across disciplines.  The goal of research will need to focus more on scientific and clinical outcomes, with minimization of individual accolades.  Science needs to influence clinical activity, and clinical activity needs to drive science.
