More quality journals by Elsevier

After all the fun re the El Nashie fan board "Chaos, Solitons and Fractals" it seems Elsevier has put another nail in their coffin by allowing the pharma company Merck to run their pseudo scientific marketing journal under their flag: Merck Makes Phony Peer-Review Journal | . Once more, John Baez has more details: The Foibles of Science Publishing | The n-Category Café

Great, I think nobody in the world can claim anymore that our libraries should throw big money at these commercial publishing houses because they provide the quality control that open access publication cannot provide.
