The Journal of the American
Medical Association has enjoyed an illustrious 116-year history as
a peer-reviewed medical journal dedicated to the science and art of
medicine and the betterment of the public health.
When George D. Lundberg, MD, editor of JAMA, was removed from
his position on January 15, 1999, there was concern within the medical
and scientific publishing communities that his dismissal was a
challenge to JAMA's editorial freedom and integrity.
To reaffirm the American Medical Association's (AMA's)
commitment to the integrity of THE JOURNAL, to
maintain JAMA's editorial independence, to protect THE
JOURNAL's integrity, and to assist in selecting a new
editor,1 the AMA assembled a search committee and announced
its members on January 27, 1999. The committee is chaired by Roger N.
Rosenberg, MD, Zale Distinguished Chair in Neurology and professor of
neurology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in
Dallas and editor of the Archives of Neurology.
