New BMC Journal: "Source Code for Biology and Medicine"

As discovered on chem-bla-ics:

Source Code for Biology and Medicine is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal soon to be launched by BioMed Central. Source Code for Biology and Medicine will encompass all aspects of workflow for information systems, decision support systems, client user networks, database management, and data mining. Source Code for Biology and Medicine aims to publish source code for distribution and use in the public domain in order to advance biological and medical research. Through this dissemination, it may be possible to shorten the time required for solving certain computational problems for which there is limited source code availability or resources.

Unlike sourceforge, submiting a paper in this journal will allow scientists to get a new peer reviewed publication( may be critical for a carreer..). Moreover, I hope this journal will allow programmers (not pure theorists) to get a paper.
