Author Affiliations: Dr DeAngelis is Editor and Dr Fontanarosa is Executive Deputy Editor, JAMA.
The major purpose of THE JOURNAL is to publish the most important and
highest-quality articles possible on a wide range of topics in medicine, with
evaluation based on prompt editorial assessment and rigorous peer review.
By doing so, we hope that articles in JAMA advance medical science, expand
medical knowledge, and, ultimately, help physicians provide the most up-to-date
and scientifically based care for patients.1
Accomplishing this is possible only with the active involvement and essential
contributions of 2 important scientific constituencies—authors and peer
reviewers—to whom we extend our sincere gratitude.
