Subject: A new twist on publishing policy....

At this URL: http://www.biomedcentral.com/news/20030814/04

you will find a story about an issue that has arisen with the journal 
Nature.

Apparently they published a review of certain treatments in Nature 
Neuroscience
but did not state that one of the reviewers had a financial interest 
(actually a
patent) in one of the treatments featured in the review.

Two neuroscientists wrote to Nature pointing out the conflict but so 
far apparently
Nature has not reacted but indicated they are "reviewing their policy"
