This week's episode (http://labbratz.comicgenesis.com) reflects a trend I've seen in academic publishing. Professors send their best work to the highest profile journals, of course. But then they have the dregs of their work written up and sent out to a "dumpster" journal that's just grateful to get anything from a big-name scientist.

I'm ashamed to say, I've been a party to this, from time to time.
