Swedish research in the colorectal field is renowned for its quality. A substantial proportion of the research comes from PhD theses. In Sweden a PhD thesis consists of a number of separate scientific articles and a comprehensive review of the topic. The dissertation act is a public defence of the work where an opponent challenges the respondent and the quality of the defence is judged by an independent board.

The reviews are most often of excellent quality but rarely published in scientific journals and thereby not reaching the readership they deserve.
