State of the ArchivesFulfilling Our Mission

Arch Dermatol. 2010;146(6):665-666. doi:10.1001/archdermatol.2010.95

In 2004, we assumed the mantle of leadership for the Archives of Dermatology, a journal that has been in continuous publication since 1882. Over the past 5 years, we have continued the Archives leadership role in the development of dermatological journal editorial policy, in the publication of clinically relevant advances, and in the education of dermatologists, other health care professionals, and patients and their relatives and friends. As part of theJAMA and Archives family of 10 journals, we are supported by and contribute to each other and to the international community of medical editors. The editorial concerns are discussed with our editorial board, and policy is created. This process brought into being clinical trial registration,1 standards for the technical qualities for clinical images,2 disclosure of financial relationships,3 systematic reviews with grading recommendations and evidence quality,4 and requirement for ethics committee or institutional review board review of research studies submitted for consideration of publication.5
