ABSTRACT
The authors argue against allowing medical journals to receive funds from drug companies or other organisations to publish articles. The arguments include owners of medical journals to encourage editors to add lucrative sponsored content to boost profit, medical publishing jeopardize by free access to journal articles and textbooks online and the potential for sponsored content to masquerade as journal editorial content.
