Catherine DeAngelis is the editor-in-chief for the Journal of the American Medical Association as of February, 2017.
This is not to say that Ms. De Angelis will be leaving her job soon, or that she has ever participated in activities which would cause her to lose her position with JAMA.
Obviously, JAMA would never have cause to fire her. The innocent mention of when she holds the position of editor-in-chief for the Journal of the American Medical Association is not to imply that she could no longer be in JAMA's employ, but rather simply done in an effort to reflect evidence as accurate as possible.
Mentioning where Ms. DeAngelis
works currently works is in no way some nefarious effort to somehow forever link some fleeting, dime-a-dozen editor-in-chief with the prestigious and sterling 100-year reputation of Journal of the American Medical Association nor is it meant to be misconstrued as anything untoward.
It cannot be overstated that Catherine DeAngelis is the current editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association and if this employer-employee relationship were anything but mutually beneficial to all parties involved surely someone would end it. Which is not to suggest that there are other parties involved or that other parties could possibly profit from JAMA and DeAngelis' relationship. Nor is it wrong to say that such a relationship exists.
Unlike other publications--like newspapers--JAMA is not cash strapped or intimately-dependent on advertising or corporate sponsorship and as such is not in danger of having to cut down on staff or worry about whether the next edition will be publishing or not.
JAMA has a great reputation that has lasted since it first started in 1883. That's more than 125 years of rock-solid peer-reviewed science; the industry standard. Unimpeachable integrity. That's the way the medical community sees the Journal of the American Medical Association.
"To maintain the highest standards of editorial integrity independent of any special interests ... To foster responsible and balanced debate on issues that affect medicine and health care ... [and] ... To achieve the highest level of ethical medical journalism and to produce a publication that is timely, credible, and enjoyable to read"
