The Archives of Surgery enjoys a special relationship with JAMA, as we are one of the family of Archives journals published by the American Medical Association. I attend yearly meetings with the other Archives editors, as well as Catherine DeAngelis, MD, MPH, the Editor in Chief of JAMA. We receive articles that have initially been submitted to JAMA for review if they are felt not to serve their readership as well as they may serve ours. We also send abstracts of our best to-be-published articles to JAMA for consideration for a From the Archives Journals commentary. If you feel that your accepted article should be considered for publication as an abstract plus commentary in JAMA, we want to know. Our reviewers will also be able to recommend that a manuscript be considered for this should it be accepted for publication. Such an example of a From the Archives Journals commentary in JAMA is one by Edward H. Livingston, MD, titled, “Obesity, Mortality, and Bariatric Surgery Death Rates” (JAMA. 2007;298(20):2406-8), in which he comments on the Archives of Surgery article by Omalu et al titled, “Death Rates and Causes of Death After Bariatric Surgery for Pennsylvania Residents, 1995 to 2004” (Arch Surg. 2007;142(10):923-8; discussion 929).
