As our readers may have noticed, we are in the process of adapting the OJNI to a WordPress format. Our goal for 2012 is to have all of the indexes for the first fourteen years’ issues accessible through the WordPress interface. At this point, the archive is fully available only from the static Archives page on the main site. We have worked hard this past year to shape the journal to evolve in aesthetics, accessibility and in use of social media platforms, but we still have a lot of work to do.
We have also introduced Facebook and Twitter feeds for the OJNI, and invite you to follow us, if you are not already. Headlines from each journal article are listed on both. As well, news, announcements, and other informatics related resources are also shared through these two mediums.
As we continue to grow, we want to remember our concrete technical evolution. At this point, all of the various formats that have been used by the OJNI are still visible through the Archives section. In time, we hope to preserve this history, yet make all past articles available in a uniform and more contemporary manner. At this point, Volume 15 and 16 are fully available in WordPress format, while the first 14 volumes are still in the older versions.
One of the many reasons for switching to a WordPress format was to enhance mobile access, whether by phone, tablet, or other tool. As well, the format allows comments and input from our readers in a user-friendly way. We welcome your suggestions for helping us to continue our evolution in ways that meet your needs and enhance the field of nursing informatics.
