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

I support the WebmedCentral idea of having a channel for rapid publication of research findings in the fast growing field of medical sciences. The additional layer of quality control performed by the plus platform is appropriate, as this gives credibililty to the academic work published through the plus platform.
