scientific blue chips

Another field I knew nothing about -- the rewarding role of publishing scientific journals in the world of science ... a science which seems to get short-changed in the publication process.

It is an industry like no other, with profit margins to rival Google – and it was created by one of Britain’s most notorious tycoons: Robert Maxwell. By Stephen Buranyi
It's a long-ish read from The Guardian, but it sounds to me like a sophisticated game of Three Card Monte.

And you thought you weren't getting short-changed. :)
