The group of scientific publications that includes JAMA and the Archives specialty journals is undergoing a major evolution. In April 2012, we launched The JAMA Network, a new editorial/publishing system that closely interconnects JAMA and the 9 Archives Journals. In May, the new JAMA Network website was launched, and soon, The JAMA Network smartphone/tablet app will be available.

We are now pleased to announce formally that effective January 1, 2013, all 9 of the Archives Journals will be officially renamed JAMA DermatologyJAMA Facial Plastic SurgeryJAMA Internal MedicineJAMA Neurology, JAMA OphthalmologyJAMA Otolaryngology–Head & Neck SurgeryJAMA PediatricsJAMA Psychiatry, and JAMA Surgery. These changes continue the evolution of The JAMA Network, and the new journal names will coincide with the first major print redesign of The JAMA Network Journals in more than 20 years. While we all realize that changes in the names of our journals, which have been revered for decades, may raise some concerns among our loyal readers and authors, we believe that standardization of format and integration into The JAMA Network will justify these changes in the long run.
