'Biology Direct': New online open access journal

A new online open access journal from BioMed Central, with a peer review twist...

"BioMed Central is pleased to announce the launch of Biology Direct, a new online open access journal with a novel system of peer review. Biology Direct will operate completely open peer review, with named peer reviewers' reports published alongside each article. The journal also takes the innovative step of requiring that the author approach Biology Direct Editorial Board members directly to review the manuscript.
The journal, available online at
www.biology-direct.com, launches with publications in the fields of Systems Biology, Computational Biology, and Evolutionary Biology, with an Immunology section to follow soon. Biology Direct considers original research articles, hypotheses, and reviews and will eventually cover the full spectrum of biology". http://www.biomedcentral.com/info/about/pr-releases?pr=20060205 [Accessed 7 Feb 2006]
