Many of the authors and readers of the Archives of General Psychiatry may not be aware that the journal is a member of a family of journals affiliated with JAMA. Thus, recent changes in leadership bear mention because they will have a direct impact on the Archives. Cathy DeAngelis, MD, the Editor in Chief of JAMA and the Archives Journals, retired in December 2011 after 13 years in this position. Her contributions to JAMA and the Archives Journals have been truly impressive. The already high citation impact of JAMA doubled under her leadership. She also enhanced electronic publishing for the journals. However, she is probably best recognized for bringing clarity to the issue of financial conflicts of interest in biomedical publishing. Because of her efforts, there is now full disclosure of financial arrangements, both for the individual authors and for their laboratories, so that readers can factor in such information in evaluating the findings and conclusions of the papers published in JAMA and the Archives Journals. Many journals are now enforcing the same standards. In addition, she was instrumental in establishing the principle that, to be considered for publication, clinical trials must be registered before their initiation at an appropriate, publicly accessible website such as ClinicalTrials.gov.
