Veteran JAMA editor Drummond Rennie, MD, has received the Scientific Freedom and Responsibility Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in recognition of his advocacy for the free exchange of unbiased scientific information.
The AAAS called Rennie a “visionary in safeguarding the integrity of how scientific information is gathered and communicated.” The award cites his “career-long efforts to promote integrity in scientific research and publishing” as well as his “outspoken advocacy for the freedom of scientists to publish in the face of efforts to suppress their research.”
