Information for AuthorsPURPOSEThe Journal of Radiology Nursing is the official publication of the Association for Radiologic & Imaging Nursing (ARIN) and is designed for radiological nurses as a forum to share knowledge and experiences pertaining to radiological nursing, including areas of education, administration, research, patient care, and case stud-ies. Topics on personal experiences are also encouraged.
EDITORIAL POLICIESSUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTSAll new manuscripts must be submit-ted through the Journal of Radiology Nursing online submission and review Web site (http://ees.elsevier.com/jrn). Authors are requested to submit the text, tables, and artwork in electronic form (not as a PDF) to this address. In an accompanying letter, authors should state that the manuscript, or parts of it, have not been and will not be submitted elsewhere for publica-tion. Submission items include a cover let-ter (save as a separate file for upload), the manuscript (including title page, abstract, main text, references, and table/figure legends), tables, and fig-ures. Revised manuscripts should also be accompanied by a unique file (sep-arate from the cover letter) with responses to reviewers’ comments. The preferred order of files is as fol-lows: cover letter, response to reviews (revised manuscripts only), manu-script file(s), table(s), figure(s). Files should be labeled with appropriate and descriptive file names (e.g., SmithText.doc, Fig1.eps, Table3.doc).
Upload text, tables, and graphics (figures) as separate files. (You can compress multiple figure files into a Zip file and upload that in one step; the system will then unpack the files and prompt you to name each figure.) Do not import figures or tables into the text document and do not upload your text as a PDF. Complete instructions for electronic artwork submission can be found on the Author Gateway, accessible through the journal home page.Authors who are unable to provide an electronic version or have other cir-cumstances that prevent online sub-mission must contact Kathleen Gross, Editor, Journal of Radiology Nursing, 7794 Grow Drive, Pensacola, FL 32514, phone (850) 474-7292 prior to submission to discuss alternate options. The Publisher and Editors regret that they are not able to consider submissions that do not fol-low these procedures.Review of Manuscripts.
