The Archives of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery provides timely information for physicians and scientists concerned with diseases of the head and neck. Given the diversity of structure and function based in this anatomic region, the Archives publishes clinical and basic research from an array of disciplines. We place a high priority on strong study designs that accurately identify etiologies, evaluate diagnostic strategies, and distinguish among treatment options and outcomes. Our objectives are to (1) publish original contributions that will enhance the clinician's understanding of otolaryngologic disorders, benefit the care of our patients and stimulate research in our field; (2) forecast important advances within otolaryngology - head & neck surgery, particularly as they relate to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease through clinical and basic research, including that of the human genome; (3) address questions of clinical outcomes and cost-effectiveness that result from clinical intervention factors that grow in importance as health care providers are increasingly challenged to provide evidence of enhanced longevity and quality of life; (4) provide expert reviews of topics that keep our readers current with true advances and also to provide a valuable educational resource for trainees in the several disciplines that treat patients with diseases of the head and neck; (5) serve as a forum for the concerns of otolaryngologists such as socioeconomic, legal, ethical, and medical issues; (6) provide helpful critiques that enable contributing authors to improve their submissions. We encourage a concise presentation of information and employ an abstract format that efficiently assesses validity and relevance from a clinical perspective. This approach promotes succinct yet complete presentation for our readers and electronic information resources. We believe this approach typifies the commitment of the Archives of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery to providing important information that is easily interpreted by its diverse readership.
