Add another one to the list of unethical behaviors of predatory journal publishers (or in this case the ''Nature'' group): allowing authors to pay extra for expedited reviews. Via http://www.metafilter.com/148384/pay-for-review
Authors can pay open-access journal extra to get reviewed in less than 3 weeks

Astronomers using observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have studied how dark matter in clusters of galaxies behaves when the clusters collide. The results, published in the journal Science on 27 March 2015, show that dark matter interacts with itself even less than previously thought, and narrows down the options for what this mysterious substance might be.

This is why you shouldn’t believe that exciting new medical study

"...on average — only 3,000 of 50,000 new journal articles published each year are well-designed and relevant enough to inform patient care. That's 6 percent."

"... there have been more than 200 failures of supposed cancer breakthroughs in recent years."

"...an estimated 85 percent — or $200 billion — of annual global spending on research is wasted on badly designed or redundant studies."
