Chicago—A governance plan promising editorial independence for the editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) was announced at AMA headquarters here on May 26.
The plan creates a seven-member journal oversight committee that will act as a buffer between the JAMA editor, who is also editor-in-chief of the AMA Scientific Information and Multimedia group, and AMA management. The plan was developed by members of the JAMA search committee that is charged with finding a new editor for THE JOURNAL.
