The editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association explains how a medical study gets published
- JAMA, The Lancet, and other reputable medical journals peer-review studies, meaning experts evaluate the research before publication.
- Journals should be judged by “the quality of peer-review that they conduct, the quality of the manuscript editing that they do, and [their] fact-checking with respect to numbers,” JAMA editor-in-chief Howard Bauchner told Business Insider.

- The average time for a JAMA article to go from submission to acceptance is 30 days, with another 25 days to online publication.
