Open Call for CJON Peer Reviewers

< return to list
Starts: 02-09-2024


The Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON) adheres to a double-blind peer review process and is recruiting peer reviewers. These valuable volunteers ensure the quality and relevancy of articles accepted for publication, as well as assist with author development. Peer reviewers must have an active nursing license. ONS membership is preferred but not required.

CJON peer reviewers are experienced oncology nurses with current clinical oncology care knowledge; master’s degree or higher is the preferred (but not required) academic background. CJON reviewer expertise covers broad clinical oncology nursing competencies, advocacy, and influence (e.g., prevention, clinical assessment, treatment, symptom management, clinical models for patient care delivery, clinical operations, psychosocial support of patients and caregivers).

Candidates must have easy access to a computer and internet because all reviews are completed online. CJON peer reviewers typically receive 3–5 invitations to review manuscripts per year. The length of the term is one year, with automatic renewal pending mutual interest.

When reviewing CJON manuscripts, reviewers provide constructive critiques, which evaluate content accuracy and quality, rigor in advancing the foundation of clinical oncology nursing practice, writing clarity, and applicability of content to current clinical oncology practice.

The CJON Editorial Board expects reviewers to complete and submit strong, professional reviews within 2 weeks of the invitation. Reviewers maintain confidentiality of all content.
