Article Content

At JCN we are constantly thinking and praying about ways to improve. Since our last reader survey we've added more great features. New departments offer focused content in concise packages. An exciting "supplemental digital content" (SDC) feature allows us to add value to articles by placing slides, charts, and videos online. We also are able to publish more than we can fit into the quarterly print issues by publishing articles "online only" (ONO) and as "publish ahead-of-print" (PAP) at Especially notable is the release of JCN on the iPad, offering a colorful, interactive journal experience. We are grateful for our publishing partnership with Wolters Kluwer Health Lippincott Williams & Wilkins who makes these new innovations possible.


A huge question for us: Are we meeting your needs? Do we publish topics helpful to you? What are we missing? Are articles too long? Too short? Are the one-page departments helpful? Is the continuing education what you are looking for? These are questions we'd like to hear from you about.
