Major medical journals interact with and serve numerous constituencies, although none are more important than authors, peer reviewers, and readers and listeners. A journal is only as good as the entirety of its content, as determined by the importance and caliber of the manuscripts that authors submit; its scientific rigor, as determined by the quality control and improvement that thoughtful peer reviewers and the editorial process provide; and its influence, as determined by the application and translation of published articles by readers to clinical care, future research, or policy making.
