No Relationship Between Advertising and Editorial Acceptance

Arch Ophthalmol. 2001;119(2):308. doi:

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.
