From the Editors

Dear Readers,

The Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing (JPNN) will celebrate 30 years of publication in 2016 with our 30th Anniversary Volume. As Editors, we would like to take this time to thank Wolters Kluwer Publishing, our distinguished editorial board members, reviewers, authors and readers--all of whom support the journal and sustain it as the high quality resource that it is. As Editors, we continue to raise the bar for the Journal and want to specifically thank the Contributing Editors for all the wonderful work they have provided to the readership of JPNN.

The Journal has successfully met the challenge of bridging two subspecialties and a shared editorship. The successful contributions that the Journal has made, i.e. focusing on specific and selected topics, have provided both perinatal and neonatal readers with timely and relevant peer-reviewed clinical and research articles, systematic reviews and subspecialty columns by expert contributing editors. Continuing Education (CE) offerings are available in each volume and can be acquired online at Nursing Center.

We are also proud of the journal's impact factor (amongst an array of journals focused on women's health, perinatal and neonatal nursing). JPNN is a highly influential resource in supporting high quality, evidence-based care for mothers and infants. Our commitment to the perinatal and neonatal population and continuum of care for this dyad is unique, offering a well known collaborative perspective that can support and inform practice.

The Journal website is very active. We hope you will visit it regularly to view upcoming topics and articles as well as other updates. Please look for the upcoming 30th year of JPNN and the special, celebratory issue of 30:3. A list of top perinatal and neonatal articles and issues from past JPNN publications will be coming soon to the website. Please visit us in 2016 and share in our 30th Anniversary Celebration!
