Avoid the use of abbreviations in the title and subtitle, unless space considerations require an exception or unless the title or subtitle includes the name of an entity or a group that is best known by its acronym.

Abstract.

Item type: 
section
In this age of electronic data dissemination and retrieval, in which abstracts are indexed and freely available, a well-written abstract is important in directing readers to articles of potential clinical and research interest and also for discoverability via online searching. The abstract of a research report summarizes the main points of an article: (1) the study objective or importance, (2) the study design and methods, (3) the primary results, and (4) the principal conclusions. Some journals may include funding at the end of the abstract or in the Methods section; others, like the JAMA Network journals, include this information in the Acknowledgment section (...

Item type:

Journals should establish their own policies on the inclusion of authors’ academic degrees. The policy of the JAMA Network journals is as follows: The highest degree or professional certification follows each author’s name. If an author holds 2 doctoral degrees (eg, MD and PhD, MD and JD), either or both may be used, in the order preferred by the author. If the author has a doctorate, degrees at the master’s level are not usually included, although exceptions may be made when the master’s degree represents a specialized field or a field different from that represented by the doctorate (eg, MD, MPH)....

Acknowledgments is the blanket term used to cover the information that follows the body of the article and precedes the references and is also known as Article Information. For authors preparing manuscripts for submission, the Acknowledgment section may include information about the authors that is not included on the title page(s) (eg, author contributions and conflict of interest disclosures), information about the manuscript (eg, funding and role of sponsor), acknowledgment of nonauthor collaborators or other contributors, and any previous presentation of the material. The Acknowledgment section is considered a continuation of the text, so that abbreviations introduced in the text may stand without expansion here....

Many journals, in addition to educational and online supplemental content, may publish ancillary promotional materials, such as audio, video, and quizzes.

Some journals publish appendixes, at least occasionally, for material that might be considered ancillary to the content of the article itself (eg, derivation of a complex formula used in the article, a survey instrument used in a study, statistical modeling details). The JAMA Network journals generally do not use appendixes. If the material is worthy of inclusion because it contains important information, it could be considered for online supplemental content (...

On the journal’s website, author affiliation notes or a link to the notes may appear just below the author names. Limited space on the first page of a print or PDF version of an article may sometimes preclude setting the author affiliation footnote on the first page. If the author affiliation footnote does not fit there, it should appear at the end of the article, after the acceptance date and the online-first or online-only information, if applicable....
