The JAMA Network
Building on a tradition of editorial excellence, The JAMA Network brings JAMA together with the JAMA specialty journals to offer enhanced access to the research, reviews, and perspectives shaping the future of medicine. Through a variety of innovative tools, The JAMA Network provides the insights that matter most to medical research and practice. The journals are published in print, online, and via The JAMA Network Reader. The JAMA Network Journals websites receive more than 33 million annual online visits.

BMJ publishes a wide range of research and provides learning and decision support for medical professionals and organizations, aimed at improving the delivery and quality of healthcare. BMJ's collection of journals includes more than 50 titles as well as The BMJ, the flagship journal, published continuously since 1840.
BMJ is owned by the British Medical Association (BMA), the professional association for doctors in the UK.

From providers and patients developing treatment plans to governments creating policies affecting the lives of millions, society depends on evidence from scientific research that is rigorous, credible and valid to make informed decisions. In partnership with researchers, policymakers and other key stakeholders, the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS) is reimagining science for the 21st century with the goal of strengthening the research enterprise to improve the quality of scientific studies in biomedicine and beyond.
