Special issue on the PACE trial
In July 2017, the Journal of Health Psychology published an entire issue devoted to the controversial PACE trial for chronic fatigue syndrome. 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*** off...you ol’ sleazebag".
