We here at JAMA Neurology want to thank our authors, reviewers, and readers for their contributions in 2016. A journal’s success is firmly rooted in the quality of its contributors, and we cannot thank you all enough for your efforts to make JAMA Neurology grow and flourish. Our increasing number of manuscripts received and reviewed has led to a high-quality publication that is widely read and frequently accessed online (Table).
