The Board of Directors of SNRS recently evaluated the current journal and responded to the changing needs of the organization. During the next year, 4 issues of SOJNR will be distributed one of which will be abstracts form the Annual Meeting. SOJNR will continue to provide the membership a high quality journal that contributes to the knowledge base of nursing and present scientific evidence, clinical evidence based practice, clinical manuscripts, integrative and systematic reviews, and theoretical papers that improve the practice of nursing with each issue featuring topics of interest specific to one of the Research Interest Groups (RIGs).
