When members of an email discussion group for Spanish medical translators decided to start a journal for their community, they could not foresee the huge, immediate success the publication was to achieve. All issues of the quarterly journal Panace@ are published online with open access from the day of publication. There are no submittal fees for authors, subscription fees for members of the parent organization, or access fees for users. Here we report how the journal got started and what sustains it. Although questions of long-term sustainability remain unresolved, the system used to start Panace@ may be worth considering for other small organizations with limited access to institutional or private sources of funding.
