PLoS Medicine Vs. the Lancet

I have already written about Open Access movement in scholarly journal publishing in this weblog. The Lancet is probably the most famous journal in the field of medicine and one of most prestigiousThe Lancet . Recently Public Library of Science (PLoS) launched a new open access journal named "Medicine" . it is to be the first open access rival to The Lancet which is published by Elsevier. PLoS Medicine has already absorbed some of the famous experts as its editorial team and some of them in fact are former editors of Lancet. PLoS MedicineI hope this movement in Open access publishing continues because it has a great benefit for developing world.
