Congress Organizers and Planners

Building on a tradition of editorial excellence, the JAMA Network brings JAMA together with JAMA Network Open, and 11 JAMA Network specialty journals to offer enhanced access to research, reviews, and opinion shaping the future of medicine. Through a variety of publication and access options, innovative tools, and multimedia, the JAMA Network provides information and insights that matter most to medical research and practice. The JAMA Network journals are leaders in reach and impact, with more than 135 million article views per year.

Global medical publisher BMJ supports its vision of a healthier world by sharing knowledge, evidence, and expertise that improve health outcomes. Our medical journal portfolio includes our flagship, The BMJ, and 70+ open access and hybrid specialty titles in oncology, pain medicine, and more. Launched in 2022, BMJ Medicine is a new open access, multispecialty journal from The BMJ that aims to improve clinical practice, policy, and medical science. In addition, we are a co-founder of medRxiv and offer digital clinical decision support tools that help healthcare professionals improve the quality of healthcare delivery.
