"JAMIA has built a solid reputation as a trusted, preeminent source for informatics science.  We increased submissions by 2 1/2 times with the expansion in JAMIA's scope, and introduced new features such as JAMIA Mobile and the JAMIA Journal Club. I look forward to continuing to lead our outstanding JAMIA team and continue to innovate with our new publishing partner" Lucila Ohno-Machado, MD, MHA, PhD, FACMI JAMIA's Editor said.  Dr. Ohno-Machado will continue as Editor until 2018.
