About the journal

The Australian Journal of Cancer Nursing, the official journal of the Cancer Nurses Society of Australia, is a refereed biannual publication that aims to provide educational material to members and other interested bodies and acts as a forum where debate and exchange of views can take place.

The AJCN is essential reading for nurses who are delivering services in the cancer field and is oriented towards clinical, education and management nurses with an interest in cancer care. In the journal, the relationships between cancer nursing, the nursing profession generally and the cancer care community are explored.

Manuscripts that have a sound scientific, theoretical or philosophical base will be considered for publication. The journal welcomes submissions on contemporary professional, policy or practice topics or issues of interest to cancer nurses. This can include research papers, case studies, reports, recommendations for practice or letters to the editor.

The Australian Journal of Cancer Nursing is listed with Cumulated Index of Nursing & Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) and the Australian Government Department of Education Science and Technology (DEST) databases.
