What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

I think that the idea behind Webmed Central is a good attempt to give counter corrent opportunities to researchers (mostly very young) who wish to make experiences of publishing on line and to elicit critical notes (positive or negative) about their work; albeit it depends on the quality of readers that want to share ideas or arguments with the writers and give their own opinions about. It cannot be anyhow a title for academic careers.
