The inaugural year of publication for JAMA Network Open has been an unqualified success. Our mission is to be “an international, peer-reviewed, open access, general medical journal that publishes research on clinical care, innovation in health care, health policy, and global health across all health disciplines and countries for clinicians, investigators, and policy makers.” We believe that the journal is clearly well on its way to fulfilling this mission. We are grateful that JAMA Network Open has been embraced by the international community who choose to submit to the journal and who read our content each week.
We thank the authors who have entrusted us to consider their work. As shown in the Table,2-5 we have received 1596 research manuscripts in the first year and published 249, for an acceptance rate of 26%. We have also published 100 Invited Commentaries and Editorials that help to put these new research findings into context for the reader, whether they be clinicians, investigators, policy makers, or the general public. We are delighted that 43% of our submissions are from countries outside the United States, reflecting our commitment and mission to being an international journal. We are committed to making this process as smooth and expeditious as possible for authors, as reflected in the time in which decisions are made and articles are published once accepted.
