Open Medicine

A group of former editors of the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) has launched today an open-source, peer-reviewed medical journal that hopes to avoid what they say are editorial biases in traditional journals having to do with the important role research played by drug and medical appliance companies. (The CBC has the story.)

Open Medicine makes its articles freely available to all and might just function as a model for an open source legal journal. And truly in keeping with the times, there’s a blog [feed] on the website as well.

Avail yourself of the opportunity to visit soon and see the home page for Vol 1, No 1 (2007). Take a screenshot: it’s a historic occasion.
