Online-Only (Supplementary) Material

UPDATE: We will discontinue using quotation marks to identify parts of an article, but retain the capitalization; eg, This is discussed in the Methods section (not the “Methods” section). This change was made February 14, 2013.

Publishing online-only material permits inclusion of audio and video components. In addition, to conserve use of budgeted print pages and yet allow interested readers access to supplementary material (eg, additional tables, figures, or references, derivation of complex equations, appendixes, detailed description of methods, large amounts of relevant but detailed data), some journals may publish Web-only material to supplement the material that appears in print. In the print article, such items should be called out by eTable 1, etc, and a note to indicate how to access this supplementary material should be published:

Additional Information: The eTable is available at http://archderm.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/141/12/1591/DCM50003ET1.

Additional Information: A computer simulation of a 3-year-old child falling down the stairs is available at http://archpedi.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/155/9/1008/DC1.

Additional Information: Supporting online material, including the Methods section, the references, and Figures S1 through S6, is available at http://sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/1122771/DC1.

Whenever possible, the exact URL of the supplementary material should be provided to help the reader more easily find the content http://archpedi.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/155/9/1008/DC1.

Additional Information: Supporting online material, including the Methods section, the references, and Figures S1 through S6, is available at http://sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/1122771/DC1.

Whenever possible, the exact URL of the supplementary material should be provided to help the reader more easily find the content. The Web version of the article links directly to the online supplementary material.

Alternatively, such additional material may be made available at the author’s website; however, because URLs change frequently, the first option is preferable.

It is the policy of JAMA and the Archives Journals that online-only material is published under the imprimatur of the journal and so should undergo editorial evaluation and should receive the same attention to detail in the editorial and production processes as if it were to be published in the print journal.
