There is a very interesting article/review by Richard Horton, the editor of
the Lancet, in the New York Review of Books in this week's issue.

From the article: "Indeed, medical journals have become an important but
underrecognized obstacle to scientific truth-telling. Journals have devolved
into information-laundering operations for the pharmaceutical industry."

It's a long article and only a part of it is about journal publishing.

It is available to all at the link below.
