Stay on the lookout for renaming of Archives titles.

The AMA Publishing Group has recently announced that the nine specialty Archives Journals in the JAMA Network will change their names effective January 1, 2013.  The changes will be implemented as follows:

Archives of Dermatology  -> JAMA Dermatology

Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery -> JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery

Archives of General Psychiatry -> JAMA Psychiatry

Archives of Internal Medicine -> JAMA Internal Medicine

Archives of Neurology -> JAMA Neurology

Archives of Ophthalmology -> JAMA Ophthalmology

Archives of Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery -> JAMA Otolaryngology—Head & Neck   Surgery

Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine -> JAMA Pediatrics

Archives of Surgery ->JAMA Surgery

States the JAMA Network website: “These changes continue the evolution of The JAMA Network, and the new journal names will coincide with the first major print redesign of The JAMA Network Journals in more than 20 years. While we all realize that changes in the names of our journals, which have been revered for decades, may raise some concerns among our loyal readers and authors, we believe that standardization of format and integration into The JAMA Network will justify these changes in the long run.”
