This isn't even peer-reviewed

While my post from this morning wasn't the most flattering of peer-reviewed research, it sure beats this: Merck published a fake journal with some help from Elsevier (link to The Scientist - free registration required). The "journal" was not surprisingly loaded with articles supportive of Merck's products. Activities like these keep making it more difficult for the pharma industry to be seen in any positive light whatsoever.

Updated 5/5: Both the Excimer (Carbon Based Curiosities) and the Chemistry Blog have more details on the matter.
