Change Equals Opportunity

When I took over the role of editor of this journal, I had some ideas about what I would like to see done differently. Most new editors do this—it is almost expected. It's like moving into a new house—the bones of the place are usually good (that's why you bought it in the first place), but it could do with a new coat of paint or even a kitchen renovation. Making changes in a publication like Oncology Nursing Forum (ONF) that is both respected and loved can be a sensitive task and, of course, the changes need to make sense. Change for change's sake is never a good idea. Therefore, I took my ideas to the editorial advisory board at our annual meeting in July.
