Special issue on the PACE trial[edit]

In July 2017, the Journal of Health Psychology published an entire issue devoted to the controversial PACE trial for chronic fatigue syndrome[1]. The articles were mostly critical of the PACE trial, and the journal concluded that "the results are, at best, unreliable, and at worst manipulated to produce a positive-looking outcome". However, three editors from the journal resigned in protest, claiming that the articles were biased and one-sided. In response, co-editor of the journal James C. Coyne attacked the editors, calling one a "disgusting old fart neoliberal hypocrite", and telling another to "f*** ol’ sleazebag".[2]
