Randy Schekman says his lab will no longer send papers to Nature, Cell and Science as they distort scientific process

Randy Schekman, a US biologist who won the Nobel prize in physiology or medicine this year and receives his prize in Stockholm on Tuesday, said his lab would no longer send research papers to the top-tier journals, Nature, Cell and Science.
