Well, perhaps. But their "peer review" is courtrooms, where the decisions
are made publicly and are produced by the justice system free of charge to
the journals.  Otherwise, the articles are written by students with faculty
advisors reviewing their work.  I don't think anyone wants medical studies
to be "peer reviewed" by medical students.
