Bypassing Editorial Board, Science Journal’s Publisher Replaces Editor, Withdraws Paper

Taylor & Francis’s actions undermine the credibility and independence of the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health. As someone who has published articles in that journal, I hope that the publisher carefully considers the editorial board’s plea and reverses its decision to replace the long-time public-health-oriented editor with someone who serves as a corporate consultant. In the spirit of the March for Science, the publisher, Taylor & Francis, should leave decisions on the membership of journals’ editorial boards, the appointment of the Editor-in-Chief, and whether to publish—or retract—articles to the journals’ independent editorial board of scientists.

“Healthy” Definition Should Steer Consumers to Fruits & Vegetables: CSPI

The Food and Drug Administration’s official definition of “healthy” should steer consumers toward fruits, vegetables, and other under-consumed healthy foods—and away from their unhealthy competitors in the processed food aisles, according to comments submitted to the agency by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest. Since September 2016, the FDA has been seeking public comment on an updated definition for the term, last defined by the agency in the 1990s.
