I was rather confused by Ellen Hunt's comment and wonder if I am missing some irony there?! Rhona is a woman and it is the Chief Editor, Richard Horton, presumably a man, who has acted unethically and not in good faith, or so it would appear. \n\nBut as always perhaps there is more to it than meets the eye? Professional jealousy on the one hand, borderline competance on the other? Who knows but please tell if you do!\n\nBut there is no doubt that Elsevier needs to clean up its act. Fake journals, unjustified dismissals and unethical censoring of editorials (Bob Grant will know what I mean as I contacted him about this last year).\n\nI think Erik Engstrom, Michael Hansen and Youngsuk Chi should take a time out from their busy lives and take a course in Corporate Governance and Ethical behaviour and then spread the word throughout the organization. I have always likened Elsevier to a supertanker; a ULCC. But we all know what happens when there is no clear guidance from the top as in the Exxon Valdez, a mere VLCC.
