The Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON), a bimonthly, peer-reviewed journal published by the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), is seeking associate editor applicants for its Editorial Board.
CJON is led by its Editorial Board, which includes the CJON editor and associate editors, who coordinate each of the nine CJON departments. The CJON Editorial Board is a collaborative, supportive forum that encourages frequent communication and a robust exchange of ideas—all to advance the journal’s mission: to publish clinically relevant, evidence-based content for oncology nurses in diverse roles and practice settings to support the clinical care of those affected by cancer.
Each associate editor shepherds an assigned department that appears in each issue of CJON. These departments are about 1,500 words long and present a focused topic of interest to clinical oncology nurse readers. The departments are written by clinical nurses in practice, and the department’s associate editor recruits authors to write. Then, the associate editor provides mentorship to the author in developing the content, from draft through to the final submission.
All associate editors must be active ONS members. This is a three-year volunteer term. Associate editors are appointed by and report to the CJON editor. In general, the associate editor term begins in January with mentorship from the outgoing associate editor until July, when the incoming associate editor assumes full responsibility for the department.
Associate editors also contribute to journal policies, procedures, and special projects.
To apply for a role on the CJON Editorial Board, log in to the ONS Communities with your ONS username and password, click "Apply Today" and complete the information requested by Sunday, November 17th. For questions, contact pubCJON@ons.org.
