Maurice and Edna Marie Minton Endowment Fund for Cancer Nursing Research
Through a generous donation from the late Mr. Maurice C. Minton, the establishment of The Maurice and Edna Marie Minton Endowment Fund for Cancer Nursing Research (Minton Endowment Fund) was made possible. The intent of the endowment is to enhance the quality and quantity of cancer nursing research for the purpose of improving cancer nursing practice and patient care. This can be achieved by increasing the number of nursing research projects directly related to cancer nursing practice through the funding of research projects, feasibility projects or student bursaries.
Deadlines: Applications must be received in the Nursing Research Office, 5-171 ECHA, by Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 3:00 p.m.

Choosing the right journal for your research is important. Is it a place where you’ll reach the right audience? Will the editors and reviewers understand your research? And what about impact? Luckily, there are many tools we can use to help us find the right place to publish our research.
In this hands on workshop, we will:
- Explore different measures of research influence (impact factor, SNIP, citations, h-index, altmetrics)
- Determine the research impact of a journal, an author, and an article
- Find the right journal fit for your research findings
- Discuss the limitations of using metrics alone to make publishing decisions
