PubMed Central Canada is open for business

From an email from NRC-CISTI:
NRC’s Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC-CISTI) is pleased to announce the launch of PubMed Central Canada (PMC Canada) in partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the US National Library of Medicine (NLM). With PMC Canada, Canadians now have a freely accessible national digital repository of the latest peer-reviewed health and life sciences literature at their fingertips, including research resulting from CIHR funding.

PMC Canada also includes a manuscript submission system that will enable CIHR-funded researchers to deposit their peer-reviewed articles, exposing their research to a global audience and facilitating collaboration to advance scientific progress.

To find out more, please see please see the full press release.
Although it's not clear what exactly is in PMC Canada, most sources seem to suggest that it contains similar content to PMC (full-text health publications) with a focus on Canadian authored/supported/related content.

Check out PMC Canada and tell me what you think.
