The author of an ARCHIVES article described a situation in which an
unnamed "non–peer-reviewed journal that covered medical and surgical
ophthalmology as well as practice management topics" appeared to have published
an article on a particular device based on an offer of paid advertising from
the manufacturer.1 The author also rhetorically
asked for journals to disclose whether there is a relationship between advertising
and editorial acceptances. As the editor-in-chief of a publication that could
reasonably be construed as the one in question, I felt that I should reply
to that request.
