JAMA Network launches open-access journal
The open-access journal, announced last year, is the 13th journal in the JAMA Network™ and the third journal launched by the AMA in the last three years. JAMA Oncology was launched in 2015, followed by JAMA Cardiology in 2016.
“For two decades, open-access publishing has risen to prominence, and we are excited JAMA Network Open is now providing a new platform for publishing the very best, peer-reviewed clinical research in new ways to meet the needs of the research community,” said AMA Executive Vice President and CEO James L. Madara, MD. “With this new journal, physicians can now access free and open research findings, allowing them to access, read and share content like never before as they can continue in their quest for lifelong learning.”
The founding editor-in-chief of JAMA Network Open is Frederick P. Rivara, MD, MPH, who formerly filled the editor-in-chief role at JAMA Pediatrics. Dr. Rivara is Seattle Children’s Guild Endowed Chair in Pediatrics, and professor of pediatrics and adjunct professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington.
