Chemical Scientists Find Their Publisher Toxic

In an unusual move, the editorial board of a small academic journal called for disciplinary action against its publisher for prioritizing “corporate interests over independent science in the public interest.”
Taylor & Francis Group acquired the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, known for calling out industry-commissioned studies defending their products’ safety, in 2015. The new owner ousted its editor and withdrew a paper critiquing industry-funded research that staged worker exposure data for litigation purposes.
In protest, IJOEH’s editorial board asked the National Library of Medicine to discipline Taylor & Francis Group, and requested the journal be rescinded from the influential Medline index.
