JAMA: New Names for 9 Specialty Archives Journals

URL: New Names for 9 Specialty Archives Journals Starting January 1, 2013

The nine specialty Archives Journals in The JAMA Network will change their names effective January 1, 2013, part of the ongoing evolution to more closely interconnect the scientific journals published by the American Medical Association.

The journals will be renamed JAMA Dermatology, JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, JAMA Internal Medicine, JAMA Neurology, JAMA Ophthalmology, JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, JAMA Pediatrics, JAMA Psychiatry and JAMA Surgery.

New ISSNs are available now on our site. The name changes will coincide with the first major print redesign of JAMA Network journals in 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,” JAMA editor in chief Howard Bauchner M.D., and the nine specialty journal editors write in an editorial formally announcing the name changes.

The covers of the renamed journals will continue to reference their former Archives titles for several months following the January change.
