The Journal of Adolescent Health's Editor-in-Chief's Annual Reflection: A Year of Endurance and Looking Toward the Future

      Now in its third year, the COVID pandemic continues to impact people of all ages in all countries of the world. Fortunately, COVID vaccines have provided hope and allowed us to look toward the future with optimism. The Journal of Adolescent Health (JAH) remains committed to publishing high-quality science that can be used to improve the health and well-being of adolescents and young adults aged 10–25 years. Recently, that commitment has led us to focus our efforts on better understanding the impact of the pandemic on young people and strategies to increase COVID vaccination rates in this population. Many recent articles examine mental health and substance use among young people as they face challenges that have emerged with the COVID pandemic, and some document inspiring adolescent and young adult resilience [

      A fourth supplement remains an exciting work in progress.

      As a new initiative, we have convened the JAH International Working Group (IWG), composed of volunteer members of the JAH Editorial Board. In 2021, Associate Editor Dr. David Ross and I led IWG meetings and robust discussions about the strategies for JAH to consider that might increase the publication of high-quality research on global adolescent and young adult health and better support international authors. Initial efforts have been dedicated to improving JAH's metrics in this domain, increasing collaboration with international members of our Editorial Board, and collecting resources for international colleagues. A summary of our JAH Global Author Resources can be found in our author guidelines on our website. Elsevier's Webshop offers a range of author services—including language editing and translation—all designed to assist authors with publication and increase the impact of research: https://webshop.elsevier.com/. Researchers from low-income countries should be aware of Hinari (Research for Health), the WHO's program to provide public institutions in eligible countries with access to peer-reviewed journals and books: https://portal.research4life.org/. Of note, many of the IWG’s discussions resonated with broader themes highlighting the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In 2022, Associate Editor Dr. Cherrie Boyer will colead efforts to identify strategies to increase JAH's support for diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism.
      We still find ourselves carefully navigating a complex and evolving landscape with regard to open access publishing [
      • Brainard J.
      Open access takes Flight.
      ]. In January 2021, JAH was designated a “transformative” journal, indicating that our current subscription/hybrid access model journal fulfills the criteria set out by cOAlition S, the open access advocacy organization [
      cOAlitionS
      Transformative journals: Frequently Asked Questions.
      ]. Our status as a transformative journal tells authors who are supported by cOAlition S funders that we are an approved venue for their open access work. This arrangement allows us to participate in the open access publishing framework while still protecting other authors' ability to publish their work in JAH under the traditional publishing model at no cost. In 2022, JAH again met the criteria to be designated a transformative journal.
      The production of JAH takes an extraordinary amount of teamwork, and it has been gratifying to work with a talented team who has demonstrated grace during a year that required more pandemic-related endurance than anyone had originally predicted. In 2021, we received nearly 2,000 manuscript submissions. Though a slight reduction from our record COVID surge high in 2020, our 2021 submissions were still 338 higher than in 2019. This journal continues to thrive because of the hard work and commitment of our Associate Editors Cherrie B. Boyer, Ph.D., Carolyn T. Halpern, Ph.D., Debra K. Katzman, M.D., and David A. Ross, BMBCh, Ph.D.; Supplements Editor Charles E Irwin Jr., M.D.; JAH Intersection Editor Sheila Quinn, D.O.; Managing Editor Tor Berg; Editorial Analyst Teresa Dal Santo, Ph.D.; JAH's Editorial Board; Elsevier's Publishing Team led by Mr. Luke Verrillo; contributing authors; and the many professionals who very generously contributed their time providing peer review [
      Thanks to our 2021 reviewers.
      ]. Together we have ensured that JAH is fulfilling its commitment to publishing high-quality science that can be used to improve the health and well-being of all adolescents and young adults.
