A transgenic mouse company is paying researchers who mention its animal models in scientific papers. They get paid more depending on the impact factor of the journal. This article was written last August but I can't find any updates if the company is still doing this. At least the scientific community is outraged. Well, all except a few but how do you know which ones get paid? It turns out that the authors don't actually receive money but discounts for the companie's products (mice for laboratory experiments). Well that certainly changes things! Not! http://mobile.the-scientist.com/article/43763/citation-payola ETA It took me a bit to realize the article was talking about transgenic mice and not transgender mice. Brain fart moment.
