Adderall: NFLs popular fresh medication or easy alibi?


. The NFL says players who need Adderall for medical reasons can perform so if they apply for a therapeutic use exemption beforehand. The league did not disclose just how many players possess such requested such waivers, so that it is unclear just how many consider the drug under a doctor’s supervision and how many ingest it for an illicit pick-me-up. Further muddying the waters on the obvious prevalence of Adderall may be the NFL’s silence on what triggers suspensions.In the past, the editor and editorial panel of a journal knew both scientific field it covered and the people employed in it, but it’s almost impossible to be sufficiently well connected when both editors and submissions come from all over the world. Having authors suggest the best reviewers may seem such as a good idea therefore. In the aftermath of the recent scandals involving fake peer reviewers, many journals have decided to carefully turn off the reviewer-suggestion option on the manuscript-submission systems. But that move might not be enough, as the publisher Hindawi found out this past springtime. Although Hindawi doesn’t let authors suggest reviewers for their manuscripts, it decided to examine the peer-review records for manuscripts submitted in 2013 and 2014 for possible fraud.
