American Journal of Nursing voted one of the most influential journals of the century
Date:4/22/2009

New York, NY (April 22, 2009) The American Journal of Nursing (AJN) today announced recognition as one of the "100 Most Influential Journals in Biology & Medicine over the last 100 Years," by the BioMedical & Life Sciences Division (DBIO) of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) on the Occasion of its Centennial. AJN was the only journal among 12 other nominated nursing journals to receive the honor. AJN, the leading voice of nursing since 1900, is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, part of Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry.

"This honor is a testament to our commitment to maintaining our reputation as the leading source of cutting-edge and reliable information about nursing and health care," said Diana Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, editor-in-chief of AJN. "We are especially gratified that AJN received this honorable recognition the old-fashioned way--based on the opinion of expert BioMedical Librarians from around the world."

AJN competed in a field of 12 nominated nursing journals and was the only nursing journal to earn 50% of the total vote. AJN will be honored, along with other winners, on Tuesday, June 16th, in Washington DC, during a luncheon honoring all 100 journals at the SLA's 100th anniversary convention.

The SLA is an organization of subject specialist librarians, information managers, and publishing industry representatives, which is composed of many topical divisions. As part of the centennial event, one of these divisions, the DBIO, convened an international panel of subject experts to poll the division membership on the 100 most influential journals of biology and medicine over the 100 years of the association's existence. The list was compiled by more than 680 members.
