Scientific medical journals like JAMA fail basic credibility standards; medical journals become increasingly irrelevant (1332 words)
The Journal of the American Medical Association -- JAMA -- and other scientific medical journals have been caught red-handed by the Center for Science in the Public Interest for failing to disclose the financial relationships between study authors and companies that might benefit from such studies.
A number of journals were caught in the same study, revealing that this failure to disclose conflicts of interest is not merely something that happens at the American Medical Association, but something that is widespread in the conventional medical community.
Too many of these journals are masquerading as stewards of good science -- they pretend to show articles that are well-researched, that are authored by people who have no financial interest in their publication, and that have been put through a rigorous quality control process known as peer review.
