The major purpose of biomedical journals, especially large-circulation general medical journals such as JAMA, is straightforward—to publish the very best articles possible to advance medical science, expand medical knowledge, and thereby enable physicians to provide the most up-to-date, scientifically based care for patients. To accomplish this, THE JOURNAL is dedicated to publishing the highest-quality and most important research studies on a wide range of topics in medicine. By doing so, we hope to keep physicians informed about important new developments not only in their area of clinical practice but also in other disciplines.
