In April 2012, the American Medical Association established the JAMA Network to promote integration of JAMA and the nine Archives journals. Since then, The JAMA Network Web site was introduced.
The JAMA Network Highlights
The JAMA Network offers access to a number of innovative features, including:
- The ability to search all ten journals at once. The search engine uses semantic tagging to link articles by meaning rather than word patterns, resulting in more relevant search results.
- An easier manuscript submission process. “Manuscripts that are not accepted for publication by one JAMA Network journal may, with the authors’ consent, be referred for prompt assessment and consideration by another JAMA Network journal. In addition, information and commentaries about articles published in one journal that have importance and relevance for another journal will be featured across the Network.”1
- The ability to export images to PowerPoint. Use of images is subject to AMA Terms & Conditions of Use.
- Expanded views of figures and tables within articles by clicking on the table/figure icon.
- Sharing links to Facebook and Twitter by clicking on the Share link in the article toolbox.
Archives Specialty Journals to Be Renamed
Effective January 1, 2013, the nine Archives specialty journals will be renamed. The new names incorporate JAMA into their titles as follows: 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.
You can find information about other user friendly tools and plans for future products on The JAMA Network.
