The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association (JAOA) is a vehicle for the dissemination of osteopathic scholarly work. Since 1901, The Journal has strived to reflect the vibrancy of scholarly activity in osteopathic medicine. Our monthly electronic tables of contents are received by more than 100,000 clinicians and scientists, and we have been experiencing growth in numerous areas. Our audience is principally generalist physicians, but our media reach is global. In the past year, many of our articles have been picked up by large media outlets and viewed by millions.1-3 
Likewise, the osteopathic medical profession has been experiencing dramatic expansion. Currently, 30 colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs) are operating in 42 locations.4 Compared with the 2005-2006 academic year, total enrollment for the 2015-2016 academic year has nearly doubled to more than 26,000 students, and in 2015, 5323 new osteopathic physicians graduated, compared with 2708 graduates in 2006.5 This growth has led to an expansion of graduate medical education (GME) training positions and a continuous infusion of osteopathic graduates into Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education training programs.6 As American Osteopathic Association programs become part of a single GME accreditation system, osteopathic graduates will require research and scholarly writing skills to remain competitive.
