What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral and WebmedCentral plus:

I believe that Webmed central's idea and what you have done will help a lot of researches to be published in proper time. We know that there are a lot of researches that should stay more than a year for publishing and this publishing sickness  is and will be an important discuss among accdemics. I think that webcentral's idea can be a proper treatment for that.
Also many young researchers will be saved of frustration and will continue research in next years.
So as an accademic pharmacist and pharmacologist fully support this idea.
