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 the Archives 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. In 2011 as the Archives of Internal Medicine, the impact factor—or literature citation index—was 11.46.
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 and in print 12 times per year, on the first Monday of each month, and reaches over 60,000 physicians in 58 countries. We receive more than 2,500 submissions per year, of which we accept approximately 13%. Manuscripts undergo rigorous peer review and careful statistical assessment within 2 to 3 weeks of submission; the interval between acceptance and publication ranges from 72 days for articles published online first to 167 days for articles published simultaneously in print and online.
