The authors present a case involving the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in which the dissenting views of one of the authors, Cantekin, a coinvestigator for a National Institutes of Health funded trial, were surpressed from publication. The principle investigator and the grantee institution claimed that the coinvestigator was not authorized to use data from the publicly funded grant, and the editor of a scholarly journal refused to review the dissenting manuscript or submit it for external peer review. At the time this article was submitted, the case had attracted the attention of the media and of the U.S. Congress. It raises the issues of ownership of data from publicly financed research and of the failure of the current peer review process to deal with dissent in scientific publication. (KIE abstract)
