Publication - Always a good thing

The final revision of one the papers from my PhD was recently published online. Publications are always good, but this one is particularly great because it's published in an Open Access journal. Open Access means that you get all of the benefits of a normal peer-reviewed journal, but the end users don't have to pay a subscription fee. One possible down side is that publication costs tend to be a little higher for the authors (although many closed journals cost a lot for publication too!). That wasn't a problem for me - my boss paid for it.

The paper itself is this one:

Merritt, J.S., Davies, H.M.S., Burvill, C. and Pandy, M.G. (2008) Influence of Muscle-Tendon Wrapping on Calculations of Joint Reaction Forces in the Equine Distal Forelimb. Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology. Article ID 165730, 9 pages, doi:10.1155/2008/165730.
This is a direct link.

Oh, and one more thing... it's published under the Creative Commons Attribution License.
