Fulfilling the key objective of JAMA, “To promote the science and art of medicine and the betterment of the public health,”1 involves publishing the most important biomedical investigations and clinical research articles possible. Rigorously conducted randomized clinical trials (RCTs) provide the highest level of scientific evidence for interventions and treatment to enable physicians and other practitioners to provide better care for patients and ultimately to improve the health of the public. Therefore, publication of high-quality, major RCTs represents a top priority for JAMA.
