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.
