Peer reviewers are a critical component of the publication process, ensuring quality and relevancy of articles accepted for print as well as assisting in author development.
The Oncology Nursing Forum is seeking new peer reviewers. These valuable volunteers assist in ensuring that only scientifically sound information is printed. They also ensure that the publication continues to meet the educational needs of its readers.
Peer reviewers are invited to evaluate 1–3 manuscripts per year in their area of expertise. The length of the term is one year, with automatic renewal pending mutual interest.
Applicants should be able to meet deadlines and provide constructive, concise, and clearly articulated critiques. Peer reviewers must be master's or PhD prepared, as well as have publication experience. ONS membership is preferred but not required. Those with expertise in various topic areas are sought; however, those with expertise in the following topics are particularly needed: genitourinary cancers; pediatrics; complementary therapies; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations; nutrition; physical activity; post-traumatic growth; and post-traumatic stress disorder.
