Virology Journal -- new OA journal on BMC

Virology Journal is ready to debut at BioMed Central. Virology Journal is an Open Access journal emphasizing rapid communication of high quality original research in human, animal, plant, insect, bacterial and fungal viruses. From the introductory editorial:
There are several outstanding virology journals covering all aspects of this dynamic field, but none of the general virology journals are exclusively published on-line or are Open Access. With the launch of Virology Journal, we hope to catalyse a fuller utilization of the Internet for scientific communication in virology drawing on our long experience with the ATV website. We welcome any advice and input.
Virology Journal - Fulltext v1+ (2004+); ISSN: 1743-422X.
