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

I like it - it is an interesting model where all papers could be essentially assigned a DOI irrespective of whether they are published or not - it gives work a central identity and be an alternative model to e-library submission for Google scholar tracking. The model should have journals which will be indexed to Pubmed - in our experience the comfort level is low without this process, similar experience for not having a impact factor.
