The major purpose of biomedical journals, especially large-circulation
general medical journals such as JAMA, is straightforward—to publish
the very best articles possible to advance medical science, expand medical
knowledge, and thereby enable physicians to provide the most up-to-date, scientifically
based care for patients. To accomplish this, THE JOURNAL is dedicated to publishing
the highest-quality and most important research studies on a wide range of
topics in medicine. By doing so, we hope to keep physicians informed about
important new developments not only in their area of clinical practice but
also in other disciplines.
