CMAJ was just beginning to regain credibility with researchers following turbulent times a decade ago, and the recent “curious decisions” will necessitate restarting the process.1
It will take many years for CMAJ to regain its lustre, and while it is treading water, other leading journals will continue to pull ahead. The CMA will be rightly criticized for its myopic approach, which diminishes the stature of CMAJ and buffets it with the whims of seemingly unaccountable individuals. At a time when Canadian academic medicine is under substantial pressure, and there is a need for the CMA and CMAJ to take a leadership role, this is a deeply unfortunate own goal.
