The process of authorship of research reports in peer-reviewed, scientific journals is increasingly transparent.1–2 This transparency has been encouraged both to highlight authors’ potential conflicts of interest and to ensure that authorship is offered to those whose contributions merit authorship. This shift toward greater transparency is regarded as a positive development that increases objectivity and truthfulness in scientific publications. Despite these changes, less consideration has been given to the status of unsigned editorials written by members of the editorial board of the journal. Although some journals have policies prohibiting the publication of unsigned editorials, others do not. Here we consider arguments in favor of and against unsigned editorials.
