Welcome to Advances in Neonatal Care, the Official Journal of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses. I hope you have been able to access Advances in Neonatal Care on your iPad! You have access to all of the journal content right at your fingertips, including articles, abstracts, and table of contents. Go to the NANN web site (www.nann.org) for information on how to get started today!
As we move into fall our editorial series on writing for publication we discuss how to write the “abstract”. We are extremely pleased at the number of comments about the writing editorials we have received from both novice and experienced writers. Please check out the September issue for the details on how to write an abstract and remember to submit your abstracts for the 2015 NANN Annual Conference and the NANN Research Summit. The due dates for both of these conferences have been changed since the October editorial went to production so PLEASE take note of the new due dates and times. The NANN annual conference abstracts are due November 3 at 7 am (CST) and the NANN Research Summit abstracts are due October 26, 11:59 PM (CST).
September also brings our CE supplement for the year focused on neonatal transport care. We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity for the continuing education credits. For 2015 we have two supplements planned, one focused on the infant’s microbiome guest edited by Katherine Gregory and one respiratory care of the neonate guest edited by Katherine Newnam. We are inviting authors to submit manuscripts for these two supplements. Please contact either of us if you would like further information about the supplement manuscript opportunity.
