Biomedical journals have an important role in shaping medical science and the practice of medicine. Knowing that information in JAMA is used by physicians and other health care professionals to make decisions about the patients they care for makes the responsibility of editing this journal a humbling experience and, perhaps more importantly, serves as a constant reminder of the major responsibility of ensuring that articles published in JAMA are as clinically relevant, scientifically valid, ethically sound, and accurately reported as possible. Fulfilling this duty and responsibility is made possible because of the active contributions and dedicated involvement of 2 critically important journal constituencies—peer reviewers and authors—to whom we extend our utmost appreciation.
