The latest research and clinical information for nurses specializing in rehabilitation has a new publisher and a new online home, as Rehabilitation Nursing, official journal of the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN), begins a new publishing partnership with Wolters Kluwer.
The January/February issue of Rehabilitation Nursing—the first to be published by Wolters Kluwer—has been posted today on the upgraded journal website: www.rehabnursingjournal.com. "This new partnership will help us build on past successes and achieve new growth for our journal, for the expanding profession of rehabilitation nursing, and for the patients and families we serve," comments Editor-in-Chief Kristen L. Mauk, PhD, DNP, CRRN, of Colorado Christian University.
Continuously published for more than 40 years, Rehabilitation Nursing is ARN's official voice for high-quality research evidence and clinical practice information. Each bimonthly issue presents in-depth articles on current practice issues, research and its implications, editorial features, and news about products and services for individuals with disabilities or chronic illnesses. The January/February issue, published today, is a special topic issue on alternative and complementary medicine practices in rehabilitation nursing.
Wolters Kluwer is a leading health, medical, and research publisher—titles familiar to rehabilitation nurses include The American Journal of Nursing and American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. Members of ARN will continue to receive the print edition of their association journal as a benefit of membership.
The upgraded journal website provides mobile-friendly access to each issue. Registered users have the ability to search previous and current issues, create article collections and alerts, share articles, and more. Kristen Mauk encourages rehabilitation nurses to submit their manuscripts using Wolters Kluwer's Editorial Manager system at http://www.editorialmanager.com/rnj. She adds, "Working together, we can move our journal forward and promote the profession of rehabilitation nursing."
"We look forward to a productive and rewarding partnership with Wolters Kluwer," comments Karen Nason, Executive Director of ARN. "It is a real step forward in the evolution of our journal, the professional development of our members, and the continuous improvement in rehabilitation nursing practice and patient outcomes."
