I just received this email solicitation for an article, based on my WLA paper. I imagine that everyone presenting at the conference is likely to get one. Beware, it's a scam. They suck you in with an offer to publish, then charge you at the last minute. More details here: http://www.mededworld.org/AMEE-News/AMEE-Articles/Attention-AMEE-2012-Participants.aspx

Some articles I've read on these sorts of journals in the past few years suggests that they don't even actually do peer-review, they just claim to.
