“All the news that’s fit to print,” declares the motto on the front page of The New York Times. JAMA Dermatology, to be sure, makes no such claim regarding dermatology. What is printed, the journal deems, is fit. Just as certainly, it is not all.

JAMA Dermatology shares other similarities with The New York Times and other newspapers. The Original Investigation, Brief Report, and Research Letter are the news of JAMA Dermatology, presenting the facts. Editorials are the news analyses, contextualizing concomitantly published research reports. Observations and Images in Dermatology are the photo essays, and articles commenting on previously published articles are the letters to the editor.
