What is a Open Medical Publishing?
Open Medical Publishing (omedpub.com) is a project by iMedPub. This blog is intended to integrate open biomedical science into rational literature. Open access articles are collected into posts that serve as chapters for book series. In addition series are collected into volumes.
oMedPub is a window onto content in a specific field, and it will collect together open-access articles from many open access journals. oMedPub allows a group of people who are interested in the same subject to share their opinions and knowledge and, ultimately, to build a dynamic, interactive community.
Open access is ideally suited to community building because everything published is available for anyone to download, print, and share, without restriction. The interactive tools for adding Notes, Comments, and Ratings to articles included in oMedPub allow users to enhance the value of research findings, to provide novel insights, and to accelerate scientific progress.
Where are articles taken from?
We take articles from journals with open-access license (allow anyone to download, reuse, reprint, modify, distribute, and/or copy articles in PLoS journals, so long as the original authors and source are cited. No permission is required from the authors or the publishers). Appropriate attribution can be provided by simply citing the original article.
What kind of subjects will be covered?
oMedPub can be long-term, focusing on topics such as neurosciences, or transient, focusing on a specific project such as a major genome project or a new research challenge, such as the SARS epidemic. Regardless of the lifetime of oMedPub, the articles that appear there will be open-access and also available from the Web site of the journal in which they were originally published.

Is oMedPub a work in progress?
Absolutely. We are continuisly adding more content to oMedPub and we will be launching oMedPub on different topics. We will also be adding new functionality to the site, and are launching oMedPub in "beta" so that we can work with the community to help shape this and future oMedPub. Would you like to join?
