Title Changes from the American Medical Association

The American Medical Association has announced new titles for all of their Archives journals, beginning January 1st of this year: 

“The nine specialty Archives Journals in the JAMA Network changed their names effective Jan. 1, 2013, as part of the ongoing evolution to more closely interconnect the scientific journals published by the American Medical Association.

The journals are renamed JAMA Dermatology, JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, JAMA Internal Medicine, JAMA Neurology, JAMA Ophthalmology, JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, JAMA Pediatrics, JAMA Psychiatry and JAMA Surgery.

The covers of the renamed journals will continue to reference their former Archives titles for several months following the January change.

Two of the specialty journals will see their new names shortened: the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine will become JAMA Pediatrics and the Archives of General Psychiatry will be known as JAMA Psychiatry.

The JAMA Network also has recently unveiled a new website and a smartphone/tablet app will be available soon.”

You can find links to the A.M.A.'s new Archives titles on the Library's eresources portal.  Full text is available upon logging into our proxy with your username and password.
