RNJ Corner: March 2023
Hear from Rehabilitation Nursing Journal (RNJ) Editor-in-Chief, Pamela Larsen's updates on renaming of the 'This n' That' article, and her encouragement for more clinical consultations to be submitted in a less formal format for the journal.
Novice writers often find writing for journals intimidating. The internet, though, has brought many other writing opportunities such as blogs, wikis, e-newsletters, etc. Often times these other options can be a 'jump-start' to publishing in a journal or writing a book chapter. What is different, though, is the writing style. On social media, the writing style is conversational in nature versus the scholarly writing in Rehabilitation Nursing. As an example, a conversational style of writing is used in writing these articles for the RNJ Corner. Some of you, though, might want to take the next step of writing scholarly articles.
In the January/February issue, RNJ premiered a new feature titled This n' That. This feature is for clinical stories, sharing what 'works' on your unit, a best practice that you facility uses, etc. RNJ published a 2nd feature in the March/April issue. In the meantime, we have changed the title of This n' That's to Clinical Consultation. This new title better reflects your work. Also note that these clinical consultations are indexed and will be able to be 'found' in the literature.
