JAMA Internal Medicine is an international peer-reviewed journal providing innovative and clinically relevant research for practitioners in general internal medicine and internal medicine subspecialities. We strive to publish articles that are stimulating to read, educate and inform readers with the most up-to-date research, and lead to positive change in our health care systems and the way we deliver patient care.
Formerly titled Archives of Internal Medicine and renamed in 2013, JAMA Internal Medicine receives regular attention from major media, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters Health, and US News and World Report, as well as social media outlets around the world. Articles published in JAMA Internal Medicine have led to actions by the FDA and congressional hearings on matters of patient safety that have put into place better measures to protect the public. The journal's 2013 impact factor is 13.25.
The editor of JAMA Internal Medicine is Rita F. Redberg, MD, MSc, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, San Francisco, California. Dr. Redberg leads a team of recognized and respected experts who serve as deputy, associate, and section editors and as members of the publication’s editorial board.
The journal is published online each week, with most major manuscripts published online first, followed by a complete print issue published every month. The journal receives approximately 3.7 million online visits annually, with 7.3 million page views and 4 million article downloads. We receive more than 3000 submissions per year, of which we accept approximately 12%.
