JAMA Network Articles of the Year 2018

JAMA. 2018;320(21):2188-2191. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.17934

For our second annual Articles of the Year, we did an accounting of all Original Investigations and Special Communications published in our journals between September 1, 2017, and August 31, 2018, and ranked them based on online views. We then interviewed the journal editors to find out why these articles proved so popular with physicians and, in many cases, the public.

This year, the topics range from trends in suicide attempts (yes, they’re on the rise) to a technique to restore a genuine smile in patients with facial paralysis. In between, there are reports on fish oil for heart health, US health care expenditures, a novel model of obesity, and more.
