The Journal of the American Medical Association serves a variety of interrelated constituencies, including physicians and other health care professionals, authors and other biomedical researchers, peer reviewers, medical students, advertisers, the public media, and, ultimately, patients. Each year, THE JOURNAL publishes results from our editorial and peer review audit to provide information to help these groups and others gain understanding of our publication processes, and also to publicly recognize and thank our peer reviewer consultants.1 This year, we provide additional information for 2 of the most important constituencies of THE JOURNAL: authors and readers.
