Author Affiliation: Dr DeAngelis is Editor, JAMA.
Four years ago, an editorial in THE JOURNAL1 discussed,
among other things, the editorial governance plan for JAMA and explained
the role of the Editor-in-Chief, Senior Vice President of Scientific Publications
and Multimedia Applications as contracted with the American Medical Association
(AMA). However, this JAMA Governance plan, which had been published in 1999,2 was never republished in a format reflecting this
contracted relationship. Recent inquiries have prompted the need to clarify
2 aspects of the document.
