Acknowledgment Elements and Order of Elements

An example of the Acknowledgment section including all possible elements as it would appear in JAMA or any of the Archives Journals is shown in the Box. In print journals, author affiliations and correspondence information typically are published on the title page (or first page) of an article. However, in some cases (eg, articles with lengthy abstracts and author bylines) and in some journals, there may not be sufficient room for all of this information and it may be published in the Acknowledgment section at the end of the article with a note indicating such on the first page of the article. Online, the author information and Acknowledgment section usually appear at the end of the article before the reference list and may be hyperlinked from the list of authors at the beginning of the article.
