On behalf of the entire editorial staff at JAMA Network Open, we want to wish you all the best in this new year of 2020. We are excited about what this year will mean to the journal. Beginning in spring 2020, we will publish new research studies every workday, increasing from our now twice weekly schedule. JAMA Network Open covers over 40 specialties and topics in health, health care, and public health for readers around the world.1 More than 40% of our submissions are from authors outside the United States, which allows us to meet our goal of publishing research that is relevant in a wide variety of settings. As an open access journal, our content is fully available to people anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
We will continue to focus on special themes as well. This past year, we have issued calls for papers on palliative and end of life care, artificial intelligence and machine learning in health care, and the effects of climate change on health. We will issue other calls for specific topics in the coming months. All of these special themes are available to our readers as topic collections on the website.
Work published in JAMA Network Open enjoys wide attention from the news media and social media. In 2019, JAMA Network Open had more than 30 000 media mentions, had 9 of the top 10 general medicine open access articles with Altmetric scores, and received more than 6.4 million views and downloads.
Thank you for being part of our family of readers and users of the information published here. We look forward to continuing our mission of improving health and health care for people around the globe. We wish you all the best in 2020.
