The Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry – past its ‘best before’ date?

Aubrey Blumsohn at Scientific Misconduct has a new piece exposing the failings of the once-prestigious Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP).

Here’s Dr Blumsohn’s parting shot as a taster:

“Such behavior on the part of a journal editor is also unfair to the many authors who have published respectable and legitimate science within their pages. It means that all manuscripts published in JAACAP should be viewed with suspicion. It is also unfair to the many psychiatrists and psychologists who are involved in honest clinical practice, and whose profession has been brought into disrepute.

What exactly is the function of a scientific journal beyond serving as a laundering operation?”

I suggest you read the full piece here and make your own mind up about the JAACAP.

    I think the profession of Psychiatry sold out the moment it began to whore itself to the pharmaceutical companies…

    And that’s been going on about 60/70 years now…

    Thats a long time for collusion…

    The Psych/Pharma regime is like a pact of the devils…

    Its insideous… and one which is not easily broken…
