BMC chair welcomes PLoS Biology

Vitek Tracz, Chairman of the Current Science Group and BioMed Central, issued a public welcome last week to PLoS Biology. Excerpt: "The first journal published by Public Library of Science, PLoS Biology, has just published its first issue, with outstanding research articles and an absolute commitment to full open access....We are at the beginning of an unstoppable change in the way scientific research findings are recorded, distributed and used, which will bring great benefits to the way science is practiced and to the relationship between researchers and other communities in society - patients, students, practitioners and members of the public."
