Clinical & Translation Science - Volume 3
Given the massive impact of diagnostics on public health, Science, Public Health Policy & the Law has created a new Section, "Diagnostics and Public Health".
This volume contains (to date) one Editorial (not peer-reviewed), two original research articles (peer-reviewed) and one Rapid Communication (also peer-reviewed). We emphasize that the Walach et al study underwent extensive, independent de novo review (see Editorial). Dr. Lyons-Weiler managed the review of Walach et al. (2021) and Brock and Thornley (2021), and an Editorial Board member managed the review of Rose (2021).
