In 2008, JAMAs impact factor was 31.7, placing it among the leading general medical journals. JAMAs acceptance rate is approximately 8% of the nearly 6000 solicited and unsolicited manuscripts it receives annually. The first editor was Nathan Smith Davis, one of the founders of the American Medical Association, and the present[update] editor of JAMA is Catherine DeAngelis. JAMA's peer review process relies on some 3500 reviewers from over 40 countries.
