Chair of COVID subcommittee requests testimony from leading science journal editors on their connection with the federal government

The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic is conducting an investigation into the relationship between scientific journals, the federal government, and peer review during the pandemic. Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), chair of the subcommittee, has requested testimony from the editors of three major science journals, including The Lancet, Science, and Nature. In his letters to the editors-in-chief, Wenstrup expressed concern over potential academic malpractice and requested information on their interactions with government officials.

A search for research articles related to COVID-19 on the websites of these journals yielded nearly 19,000 results. The Hill reached out to the journals for comment on the matter. The subcommittee’s ongoing investigation aims to shed light on how scientific journals handle sensitive information related to public health and how they interact with government officials during a crisis.
