One hundred years ago, the American Medical Association became the publisher of The Journal of Cutaneous Diseases and changed the journal’s name to Archives of Dermatology and Syphilology to align with the titles of other medical journals published by the organization. Close reading of the announcement (Box)1 of this change makes us proud to be Editor of JAMA Dermatology (K.S.) and Editor in Chief of JAMA and the JAMA Network (H.B.) at this most auspicious time for JAMA Dermatology and also inspires important reflections of where the journal has been, where it stands currently, and where it is going.
