This article (Intelligent design has been published in peer-reviewed journals (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CI001.4:

Intelligent design in biology has been supported by several peer-reviewed journals and books...

CreationWiki response: (Talk.Origins quotes in blue)

2. One peer-reviewed intelligent design article has now been published, albeit in a fairly minor journal that focuses on taxonomic description. Others likely will follow, given enough time.

This only serves to prove the claim. It is interesting how at no point does Talk Origins actually refute the fact that intelligent design had been published in peer-reviewed journals.

In 2004 Richard Sternberg, the former managing editor of the Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington, published a peer reviewed ID article called "The Origin of Biological Information and the Higher Taxonomic Categories." As a result he was kicked out of the Smithsonian Institution and otherwise persecuted.

It just shows what ID and Creation Science face in trying to get published in so-called mainstream journals, and why their proponents seldom seek publication in these journals. Here, a journal publishes a peer reviewed ID paper and the response from the scientific establishment is to persecute the managing editor. This type of response not only prevents other papers from being published in so-called mainstream journals, but it prevents submission as well, regardless of the merit of the paper.
