Pallab Ghosh, BBC News
The case has been brought against the publication by an Egyptian scientist, Prof Mohamed El Naschie.
He has claimed that an article published by the journal in November 2008 damaged his reputation.
The counsel acting for the journal told the court on Friday that the article was factually accurate and in the public interest.
