In response to media reports that imply otherwise, Annals of Internal Medicine did not schedule the publication of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendations about breast cancer screening to coincide with a particular date or event. The background papers underwent several rounds of revision over about 5 months, based on comments by independent peer reviewers and an Annals statistical editor. The background papers and the recommendation statement were all in final, accepted form by 10 September 2009. Annals scheduled them for the next available print issue, which was the 17 November 2009 issue. Our routine print production process takes about 2 months from final acceptance to print.
