The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, led by Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), is conducting an investigation into the relationship between scientific journals and the federal government. In particular, Wenstrup has requested testimony from the editors of three major science journals – The Lancet, Science, and Nature – regarding their interactions with the government during the pandemic.

Wenstrup’s concern stems from Freedom of Information Act requests that showed these journals had been in contact with top White House health officials like Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins. However, Wenstrup did not provide specific reports or studies in his letters to the editors-in-chief.

A search for research articles related to COVID-19 on the websites of the three science journals yielded nearly 19,000 results. The Hill reached out to The Lancet, Science, and Nature for comment on the matter.

The ongoing investigation aims to shed light on the interactions between scientific journals, the government, and peer review during the pandemic. It is part of a larger effort by the subcommittee to engage with experts and officials involved in the COVID-19 response. Earlier in the year, Fauci participated in two days of closed-door interviews with the subcommittee.
