Asia-Pacific Journal of Oncology Nursing (APJON) intends to form an Early Career Editorial Board (ECEB) to recognize outstanding early career researchers and engage them in a path towards editorial work. Early career researchers are defined as those who are within 5 years after receiving PhD. A term for ECEB members is two years, with possible renewal for a second term (if eligibility continues to be met). Exceptional ECEB members will be elevated to APJON Editorial Board member status. They will also be promoted and recommended for similar capacities to other Elsevier journals.
The responsibilities of ECEB members include:
Conduct reviews for at least five submissions to APJON annually
Submit at least two manuscripts to APJON within the term (which will be processed like any other regular submissions)
Be an ambassador of APJON and promote the journal via social media, conferences, and other channels
Offer their expertise and insights to support the editorial process and contribute to enhancing the quality and relevance of the journal
Assist with special issues under the guidance and discretion of APJON editors
Qualified early career researchers are encouraged to submit an application including name, gender, affiliation, education, expertise, reviewing experience and a list of publications, in a single PDF file and via an email to APJON editors (Kevin Liu, firstname.lastname@example.org and Susie Sun, email@example.com). The deadline for application is June 30, 2023. All applications will be reviewed by APJON editors and applicants will be informed about a decision within four weeks past the deadline. The selected ECEB members’ names will be posted on the webpage of the APJON Editorial Board.

APJON is a monthly, gold open access journal that addresses different spectrums in relation to oncology nursing-prevention, screening and early detection, geriatric and pediatric nursing, medical and surgical oncology, ambulatory care, nutritional support, cancer-related psychosocial issues and support, management of cancer symptoms and side effects caused by different types of cancer treatment, palliative care and end of life care, long-term survivorship, and other issues and care related to cancer patients-especially nursing innovations and the research findings in these areas.
The journal offers up-to-date information about AONS and features the following article types: editorial, review, original article, case report, letter to editor, short report, technical notes, nurse education, etc. In particular, APJON will serve as a platform for all oncology nurses from the Asia Pacific region to share information in each field of oncology nursing.
