Medical Algorithms: a web site devoted to "depression scales" and the like

I've long thought it would be interesting to have a single source for all the scales, instruments, algorithms and the like one finds in medical journals. Someone has built this source:

Medical Algorithms

...More than 11,000 Scales, Tools, Assessments, Scoring Systems, and other Algorithms useful in Medicine and Biomedical Research...

I wonder if they have any copyright issues, but they may be covered by fair use as long as they don't try to make money form the content. Most of these scales are, unfortunately, owned by the journal publishers.
