Ivy League and Pharma collusion. Allegedly…

In case anybody has been following the case of the missing journal recently, the Harvard Health Policy Review website is now back online and you can read about why it went offline – apparently no pressure was applied by any party, which sounds a little unlikely, but then what do I know? It’s all been great fun. Basically the HHPR published an article entitled “Ethical Standards for Healthcare Journal Editors: A Case Report and Recommendations” that made serious accusations of malpractice against the editors of the Journal of Health Economics – what makes it all the more interesting is the presence of drug money and collusion between pharma and Ivy League academics – the Health Care Blog covered it here. There are some serious accusations involved, and if any of the mud sticks it’s rather worrying.
