Australian Nursing Journal goes online

Sunday 11th November, 2012

Australia’s leading nursing journal, the Australian Nursing Journal (ANJ), is now available to readers online.

The ANJ is the Australian Nursing Federation’s national journal for nurses, midwives and assistants in nursing and is published 11 times a year – reaching a readership of more than 120,000.

The latest CAB audit of the ANJ showed an increase in circulation to 90,761 at September 2012, an increase on the 88,419 figure in March 2012.

Federal Secretary Lee Thomas said with ANF membership now standing at more than 220,000 it was timely for the journal to go online.

“The online edition will be easily accessible for all of our ANF members and the other readers of ANJ,” Ms Thomas said today.

“The new online edition of the ANJ is part of the ANF’s revamped website and will assist us in driving our recently-launched positive national nursing campaign, Australia’s nurses and midwives. You couldn’t be in better hands.”

The most recent ANJ survey found over 90% or readers say the ANJ is easy to read, interesting and informative with more than 70% of people reading it “cover to cover”.

Ms Thomas said the ANJ online would benefit potential and current advertisers.

“The ANJ online will enable advertisers to reach nurses, midwives and assistants in nursing on a broader scale and more often,” she said.

“Over half of the ANJ’s readers find advertisements for employment useful; and 75% find advertisements for university courses and conferences useful. Online subscription will soon follow, making it easier for subscribers to sign up or renew their ANJ.”
