3) Changes to the Society’s Official Journal: Psycho-oncology.
Following the Editorial Board meeting in Washington DC in 2015 the Editors introduced changes to the Editorial Board. This involves the expansion of the Board to include a new affiliate category integrating early and mid-career psycho-oncologists from around the world. This provides an opportunity for them to be involved in the development of the leading international journal in psycho-oncology. The affiliate Board Members will work alongside the existing Editorial Board to guide the journal forward so that it meets the needs of the present and future generation of psycho-oncology researchers.
The publisher of the journal – Wiley – has introduced an early publication route: your paper can now be published within 5 days of acceptance.
The Editors and publisher also wanted to recognize the many reviewers who generously give time to fellow professionals by assessing and commenting on papers submitted. We are pleased to inform you that Wiley has partnered with Publons, a valuable new service dedicated to supporting improvements in peer review. Publons aims to give credit to reviewers for their contributions in a format they can include in resumés and funding applications. Publons provides a valued service for reviewers who feel it’s important to have a public record of their review activity. Reviews remain blind and unpublished, meaning that the reviewer’s name will only be associated with the journal and reviewer comments will not be published.
