US Military Services and Titles

JAMA and the Archives Journals prefer that the author’s nonmilitary academic degree(s) be used in bylines, eg, Christopher Lee, MD, not Col Christopher Lee, USAF, MC. If used in the text, the abbreviation of a military service follows a name; the abbreviation of a military title (also called grade or rank) precedes a name (eg, 1LT Cornelia McNamara, AN, USAR). Military titles and abbreviations should be verified with the author (see also 2.2, Manuscript Preparation, Bylines and End-of-Text Signatures; and 2.2.3, Manuscript Preparation, Bylines and End-of-Text Signatures, Degrees).
