I like the tagline on this one—A charity run by biologists for biologists. The title is a bit misleading, inasmuch as the site provides online scientific research journals via the Open Access Initiative.

Three journals are offered by the publisher: Development, Journal of Cell Science, and The Journal of Experimental Biology. The company also provides travel grants and fellowships of up to $4,000 to postdocs interested in collaborations with other laboratories.
