The mission of the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON) is twofold:
- to provide practical information necessary to care for patients and their families across the cancer continuum and
- to develop the publication skills of oncology nurses.
Articles are to be clear, concise, comprehensive, and well referenced and address practical information necessary to care for patients and their families across the cancer continuum. Include implications for nursing practice and identify patient education, including resources if appropriate. Research reports should be submitted to the Oncology Nursing Forum. Articles focused on treatments that have not yet received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval will not be accepted unless under review by the FDA; if accepted it will be held and published at the time of approval.
A manuscript submitted to CJON must only be under consideration to this journal; the material must be original and not previously published. All manuscripts will be reviewed for originality via a plagiarism software program. Manuscripts found to plagiarize the work of others will be prohibited from publication in the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing or Oncology Nursing Forum. All submitted articles are subject to a double-blind peer review. Articles will be judged on quality of the work and suitability for the CJON audience. All articles are considered, but not guaranteed, for inclusion as a continuing nursing education activity. Quality Improvement Projects are encouraged to address the Standards for Quality Improvement Reporting Excellence (SQUIRE).
