To the Editor: The Council of Science Editors,
which includes both scientific editors and publishers, views with deep concern
the second firing within one year of the editor of a major medical journal.1 The involuntary separations of George Lundberg,
MD, from JAMA and Jerome Kassirer, MD, from the New England
Journal of Medicine raise troubling questions about editorial freedom,
the reputations and cultures of scientific publications, and the proper relationship
between a journal and its owners.
