What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

With the advent of novel technologies in biomedical field, there is grave need for a portal that could help researchers and scients to share their valuable inputs/research and ideas. This is the only way through which biomedical scientists could be able to keep pace with advancing technologies. and I think, webmedcentral is amicably helping us in this regard.
