OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
“Neither gender nor institutional affiliation delineate scientific quality, which may cause some concern but requires further investigation,” says the study first author Dr Stephan Winnik, a cardiologist in training at the University Hospital of Zurich, Switzerland.
“Peer review has been and will be the sacred pillar of science, nonetheless our study suggests that introducing a double-blinded approach to journal review merits serious consideration,” says Winnik.
Commenting on the study Professor Thomas F. Lüscher, editor of the EHJ and one of the authors of the article, says, “This study reassures us that the peer-review process of the ESC Congress works well, and provides an important quality control.”
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) represents more than 75 000 cardiology professionals across Europe and the Mediterranean. Its mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe.
