It's a New Day at the JAOA

We’re so proud to announce that the JAOA has been refreshed, refocused, and renamed. Learn more about The Journal of Osteopathic Medicine (JOM) here, including our new partnership with a major academic publisher (deGruyter) and our switch to an online-only, open access format. Read a Q&A with Melissa Schmidt, JOM Director, about what these changes mean for authors and readers. Also be sure to follow us on Twitter for the latest JOM-related updates and announcements.

JOM Employs Double-Blind Peer Review

We're pleased to announce that — as of February 2021 — JOM now utilizes a double-blind peer review process for all manuscript submissions. Put simply, this means that our authors will not know who reviewed their work and the reviewers will not know who wrote it. Double-blind peer review has been shown to reduce bias and is generally believed to be a fairer approach than single-blind peer review. Learn more about available peer review options here and please feel free to email the Editorial Office if you have any questions.
