Author Affiliations

Letters Section Editor: Robert M. Golub, MD, Senior Editor.

In Reply: We appreciate the recognition by Dr Palmer and Ms Martin that our decision to incorporate articles by medical students into JAMA with those of all other authors addresses the "emerging emphasis on evidence over opinion." However, our encouraging submission of evidence-based manuscripts (as we do evidence-based practice) from all authors does not eliminate our continued interest in publishing well-thought-out opinion articles. We encourage submission of such manuscripts from any JAMA reader, including medical students, and will continue to publish special communications, commentaries, A Piece of My Mind, and poetry.
