ONS Journal CJON Accepted for Indexing and Earned High Impact Factor
Wednesday, July 20, 2011
The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) is pleased to announce that the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON), an award-winning publication of ONS, has been accepted for indexing in Web of ScienceSM, the largest and most comprehensive citation index available.
“We are quite pleased with our initial rank given the clinical focus of our journal. We hope to see that number improve in each successive year,” said Deborah K. Mayer, PhD, RN, AOCN®, FAAN, editor of CJON.
The quality and depth of content Web of Science offers to researchers, authors, publishers, and institutions sets it apart from other research databases. The inclusion of CJON in the nursing index demonstrates ONS’s dedication to providing the most relevant and influential oncology nursing content to our members.
Reuters released its new impact factors, which marks the first time that CJON has received an impact factor, a measure reflecting the average number of citations to articles published in scientific journals. CJON debuted with an impact factor of 24 out of 85 in the nursing category, while ONS’s research-based journal Oncology Nursing Forum ranks fifth.
