Advanced Print Exclusives Give ONS Journal Readers Early Access to Articles
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) is pleased to announce that the journals Oncology Nursing Forum (ONF) and Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON) are unveiling advanced print exclusive articles to give readers access to important, cutting-edge content ahead of print.
Articles from the journals are available on MetaPress under the Advanced Print Exclusive Article link. These articles will be open access, meaning they are available to members and non-members alike, until they appear in print at a later date. At that time, the content will become password-protected like all of the other articles that appear in print as online exclusives in the journals.
“I am so pleased to see this new value-added feature for our readers, both members and non-members alike,” said Anne Katz, RN, PhD, editor of the ONF. “This will hopefully be the start of many more 21st century services that we will be adding in the near future that will keep ONS’s journals among the most respected of nursing journals.”
The first article to receive the advanced print exclusive designation is “Outcomes of an Uncertainty Management Intervention in Younger African American and Caucasian Breast Cancer Survivors,” by Barbara B. Germino, PhD, RN, Merle H. Mishel, PhD, RN, FAAN, Jamie Crandell, PhD, Laura Porter, PhD, Diane Blyler, PhD, Coretta Jenerette, PhD, RN, and Karen M. Gil, PhD. The authors propose a Younger Breast Cancer Survivor Uncertainty Management Intervention (YS-UMI) model as a way to improve uncertainty and lessen the amount of breast cancer-specific concerns that young (< 50 years) breast cancer survivors face. This exciting content also includes a podcast discussion with first author Barbara B. Germino. In addition, journal club questions are offered at the conclusion of the article so you can continue the discussion with your nurse colleagues.
