ETHICAL ISSUES

Kennefick D. 2005. Einstein versus the Physical Review. Physics Today 58(9):43-48
Reports how Einstein objected when the Physical Review sent a paper of his to a referee, withdrew the paper and subsequently published it in another journal with radically altered conclusions - and never again submitted a paper to Physical Review! The reasons for his changes are discussed as are the policies of early journals about acceptance of papers.
