About JAMA Surgery

Julie Ann Freischlag, MD

JAMA Surgery (formerly Archives of Surgery) began publication in 1920. It is an international peer-reviewed journal published 12 times a year; the online version is published on the third Wednesday of the month. A Middle Eastern edition of JAMA Surgery is published bimonthly. JAMA Surgery is the official publication of the Pacific Coast Surgical Association and the Association of VA Surgeons. The editor envisions the journal as a sounding board and forum for all the changes that are occurring in surgery today, including training paradigms, the 80-hour work week, women and minorities in surgery, malpractice concerns, and universal access to health care. The acceptance rate is 27%. The average time from acceptance to publication is 9 months. Its 2011 impact factor is 4.42 (the impact factor is a measure of citation rate per article, and is calculated by dividing 1 year's worth of citations to a journal's articles published in the previous 2 years by the number of major articles [eg, research papers, reviews] published by that journal in those 2 years). The editor is Julie Ann Freischlag, MD, Vice Chancellor, Human Health Sciences, and Dean, UC Davis School of Medicine, UC Davis Health System in Sacramento, California.
