Introducing Readers Comment
JAMA Surgery now has an online readers' discussion of published articles. Submit Comments by selecting the article Comments tab. Letters submitted for consideration for print and online (archival) publication but not accepted may be accepted for Readers Comment.
During 2013, we are soliciting manuscripts on the surgical care of the aging population. The editorial board has selected this topic as our year-long theme. We are interested in papers that focus on the field of geriatric surgery (on the decision whether to operate on elderly patients, what operation to perform, and which approach to take). Any manuscript using a clinical trial methodology to evaluate comparative effectiveness in the surgical care of the aging population will be appreciated. Accepted manuscripts will be given priority publication. Please indicate in your cover letter that your manuscript is to be considered for this theme.
JAMA Surgery is pleased to announce that it is now the official publication for the Association of VA Surgeons.
