PITTSBURGH, PA—August 29, 2019—The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) periodical publications have been recognized for their commitment to excellence, with recent honors bestowed from Association Media and Publishing (AM&P), Communication Concepts, and the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE).

AM&P’s Excel awards are presented to nonprofit organization publications that exceed industry standards and exhibit excellence, aptitude, and innovation. For a second year, the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON) received a gold award in the General Excellence category—a top honor from AM&P. The accomplishment came shortly after CJON received a gold award from ASHPE in the Best Supplement category for its December 2018 gero-oncology supplement, in addition to a silver award in Best Cover Illustration for its October 2018 cover on psychological distress.

“The 2019 AM&P Gold Award for General Excellence represents the steadfast and inspired talents of our CJON team, which supports CJON as a forum for excellence in clinical oncology care,” CJON Editor Ellen Carr, RN, MSN, AOCN®, said. “This recognition is especially significant since it is based on the quality of a series of issues of CJON, representing invaluable contributions from each of the dedicated individuals on the CJON editorial board, peer reviewer board, and CJON production staff.” 

The ONS Voice news magazine received two Excel awards from AM&P: a silver award in the Digital Media category for its website and a silver award in General Excellence for its print issues. The Oncology Nursing Podcast also received a bronze Excel award from AM&P in the Digital Media, Membership Podcasts, category.

For its comprehensive 2018 journal redesign, the Oncology Nursing Forum won an APEX Award of Excellence in the Most Improved Magazines, Journals, and Tabloids category from Communication Concepts.
