1590 CardioPulse doi:10.1093/eurheartj/ehy194 Science is communication—every paper strives to stimulate the research of others in the field. A paper that is not read and considered by others has no value. Indeed, the citations that we use to rate publications and journals alike reflect this very fact. Social media are now also involved in spreading the news of articles, and they are particularly suited to provide a platform for discussion. However, the length in these media comments does not allow an in-depth discussion of any single topic. To address this issue, the European Heart Journal has introduced a new feature: The ‘Discussion Forum’. While e-Letters, a well-established feature of the journal, already offers the opportunity to comment on articles and issues, they are not suf- ficiently visible for important and in-depth discussions. Therefore, commentaries that are considered of general interest to our readers’ at large will from now on, be included in the printed issue of the new section ‘Discussion Forum’. This will provide authors who are able and willing the opportunity to respond to the questions, issues, and critique raised by readers of the journal. It is the hope of the editors that this new feature will be of interest to our readers and eventually will stimulate future research in our areas of interest. In this issue of the EHJ, the first-ever Discussion Forum opens with replies by: (1) N. Pothineni and J. L. Mehta to article ‘Can certain infections protect against atherosclerosis’. (2) Michael. D. Gurven, Caleb.E. Finch and L. Samuel Wann to article ‘Are intestinal worms nature’s anti-atherosclerosis vaccine?’ Cardio Pulse contact: Andros Tofield, Managing Editor.
