JAMA and Archives of Surgery have a close relationship, being part of the scientific journals published by the American Medical Association. These journals are owned and operated by the American Medical Association but are editorially independent, with a journal oversight committee that serves as a buffer between the American Medical Association and the journals. For all issues related to editorial content, the Editor in Chief reports to the journal oversight committee.1
