2015 is a landmark year for the Canadian Journal of Nursing Informatics, since it marks our 10th year of publication! It seems like a fitting time to set some New Year resolutions that can help to guide us in ways that support Journal growth and development, and draw increased high quality submissions. We are in the process of implementing a new submission system, are welcoming new editors to our board, and in conversation with potential new columnists. We look forward to this coming year as we celebrate our 10th Birthday!
Our 2015 Resolutions include:
Support our new columnists and attract more.
Tap the expertise and dedication of our existing and new Editorial Board to further Journal growth and development.
Implement online submission system and streamline review process.
Involve more Schools of Nursing in including Journal publication in nursing education assignments (and streamline for publication readiness).
Extend the reach of the Journal to include enhanced directory and database registration.
Enhance International representation on Editorial Board and encourage more global submissions.
Enhance Editorial resources and online workspace, including mentorship in review and copy editing processes.
Continue to encourage manuscript submissions of various kinds, including traditional papers, as well as essays, reviews, conference summaries, and multimedia pieces.
We at CJNI wish you all a very memorial and Happy New Year!
