The Archives of Neurology & Psychiatry began publication in 1919 and, in 1959, became 2 separate journals: Archives of Neurology and Archives of General Psychiatry. In 2013, their names changed to JAMA Neurology and JAMA Psychiatry, respectively. JAMA Psychiatry is published online weekly, every Wednesday, and 12 print/online issues per year. The journal receives more than 2.3 million online visits annually, with 2.7 million article views and downloads. Without any author fees, all research articles are made free access online 12 months after publication on the JAMA website. All articles are made free access on The JAMA Network Reader on the day of publication. The journal's acceptance rate is 15% of the nearly 1100 manuscripts received annually. The median time to first editorial decision is 3 days or less, and 48 days with review. The median time from submission to acceptance (with time for author revision) is 4 months and from acceptance to publication is 3.5 months. All major articles are published online first. The journal's 2014 Impact Factor is 13.75. The editor is Stephan Heckers, MD, Chair of the Department of Psychiatry, and William P. and Henry B. Test Chair in Schizophrenia Research at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee.
