The world of ophthalmology is fortunate to have had the scholarly leadership of Daniel Albert, MD, MS, as one of the longest-serving editors of JAMA Ophthalmology, formerly the Archives of Ophthalmology. It is an honor and a privilege for me to follow Dr Albert as the next (and ninth) editor of JAMA Ophthalmology. Far beyond just a new editor in chief, this July 2013 issue begins the transition to a major redesign coordinated with JAMA and the 9 specialty journals, including JAMA Ophthalmology, that represent The JAMA Network. As a result of these changes, and the tight bond of The JAMA Network structurally and conceptually, the imprimatur of JAMA, with its high impact factor of 30 and hopefully growing, and its ability to reach millions of people in print, on the web, or through digital media, provides an intangible benefit to JAMA Ophthalmology not available previously to it or other peer-reviewed journals in ophthalmology. Readers, authors, and reviewers can learn more about the revolutionary changes in an editorial accompanying the July 1, 2013, issue of JAMA.1
