BMC good initiative

I would like to draw attention to this new electronic scientific journal by BioMedCentral:

"The aim of BMC Research Notes is to reduce the loss suffered by the research community when results remain unpublished because they do not form a sufficiently complete story to justify the publication of a full research article. A key objective of the journal is to ensure that associated data sets are published in standard, reusable formats whenever possible. Data sets published in the journal will be made searchable and easy to harvest for reuse."

In my opinion it is an excellent initiative, both to encourage publishing incremental and 'negative' results, as well as the focus on open and easy access to data sets and results.
