Frequently Asked Questions

  • General Questions
    • Why are the articles side-by-side?

      The side-by-side view provides readers the ability to compare multiple aspects of the scholarly article on one screen. Both panes scroll independently, so a user can read the full text directly alongside tables or figures referenced by the text.

    • Why aren't all the articles side-by-side?

      Only articles containing detailed data sets and supplemental content are presented in the new side-by-side format. Articles such as editorials and essays are presented in a wide single-column format for comfortable reading.

    • I bookmarked articles I am using for my research. Will those bookmarks still work?

      Yes, the site was built to automatically lead you to the correct pages. All of your saved links and bookmarks will still work.

    • I’ve disabled cookies on my browser and the site is not functioning properly. Why is this?

      Blocking cookies on JAMA network sites can have a negative effect on the user’s experience on the site. At this time, our platform does not offer an alternative experience for users who choose to disable cookies in their browser. Please view our Privacy Policy for more information on cookies and how we use them.

  • Institutional Customers
    • My institution has a site license. What’s changing for us?

      Although the site looks different, the way your site license works will not change. IP addresses, bookmarks, alert preferences, and access are not affected by the redesign. The administrator dashboard has a new look, but your sign in information and the content is still there, including COUNTER reports. To learn more about the new URL structure, please visit https:/

    • How do I search by volume and issue? What happened to Advanced Search?

      To get to Advanced Search, enter your search term in the main search box at the top of the page. On the search results page, click Advanced Search on the top left to search by volume, issue, DOI, etc. You may also choose to bookmark to access advanced search directly.

    • Does this affect OpenAthens/Deep Links?

      Your institution’s current links to content will be redirected to the correct article pages. If you are crafting direct links into JAMA Network articles using the EduServ OpenAthens service after Oct. 6, 2016, please go to for more information.

  • Questions about CME
    • Where do I find CME activities?

      To browse CME, you can filter quizzes by specialty journal, by topic, year or US State Requirements.

    • Can I take CME on my phone?

      Yes. The new website allows optimal viewing, navigation and functionality on all devices, including phones.

  • Important Sales Tax Information
    • AMA is required by law to collect sales tax on orders shipped to California, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. If you are shipping to any of these states, the appropriate charges will be added to your total order and displayed on your final order confirmation.

      We do not collect sales or use taxes in all states. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Some states require each purchaser to report any taxable purchase that was not taxed and to pay use tax on the purchase. The tax may be reported and paid on the state’s individual income tax return or consumer use tax return. Details of how to file these returns may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.
