To our Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses Members and Canadian Journal of Critical Care Nursing[TM] Readership,

Over the past year, the editorial team in collaboration with the editorial review board and the national board of directors of the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses (CACCN), have had many conversations regarding the Canadian Journal of Critical Care Nursing[TM] (CJCCN). Our aim has been to ensure that the CJCCN continues to be a major vehicle for critical care nursing scholarship and knowledge dissemination in Canada and internationally. We have engaged in several transition initiatives to achieve this aim.

First, in 2021, the CJCCN will be launching a stand-alone website. The website will feature current and archived publications. The website will also be the primary home for all information pertinent to the CJCCN including updated information specific to publication in the journal (i.e., Guidelines for Authors), as well as our policies and procedures from manuscript submission and peer review through to publication. CACCN members will receive access to the CJCCN website and all journal issues freely through continued membership. The website will feature advertising opportunities and will provide a mechanism for subscription, as well as acquiring access to manuscripts for those who are not members of the association.

Second, following the conclusion of the 2020 publication year, all future publications of the CJCCN will be electronic. For a variety of reasons, the editorial team, in collaboration with the national board of directors, has decided that we will no longer provide the journal in print format. While there may be some exceptions where print is available (i.e., for archival purposes, fulfilling pre-existing agreements and organizational subscribers), moving forward in 2021, CACCN members and CJCCN readers will be provided with electronic access via the new CJCCN website.

Finally, as we continue to move forward in meeting our aim of producing a high-quality, critical care nursing journal, we anticipate that there will be other transitions forthcoming. The continued success and impact of the CJCCN is essential not only in Canada, but internationally as well. As the Chief Editor of the CJCCN, I am excited to see what the future will bring!
