JAMA is, among other things, a forum for open discussion of matters relevant to the field of medicine, a place for responsible, balanced debate for the education of readers, primarily physicians, to help meet the overall mission of advancing the art and science of medicine and the betterment of public health. The members of the American Medical Association (AMA) (nearly 300000 or nearly 40% of US licensed physicians and medical students) are the owners of JAMA, and they, along with nonmember physicians through their representatives in the federation of American medicine (the House of Delegates representing 95% of US physicians), have consistently supported the editorial freedom of JAMA to operate within an approved set of goals and objectives.1
