Introducing JAMA Network Open

Sign Up for Email Updates
Launching in early 2018, JAMA Network Open will publish original research and commentary on clinical care, health policy, and global health.
Guided by the highest standards of peer review and integrity, JAMA Network Open will offer authors and readers an entirely new, online, open access resource, fully accessible within the JAMA Network family of journals.
JAMA Network Open will provide another high-quality option for authors of research articles already represented by our current journals, as well as expanding opportunities for authors of manuscripts in other important disciplines.”
