The best conference presentations tell a story with an interesting introduction, details in the middle, and a conclusion that leads to new research, questions or answers about practice, and perhaps further research on the topic. So, too, do journal articles, and this publication is dependent on the rigors of quality research to tell stories about our patients and their experiences and make suggestions on how we can effect change.

The impact factor can undervalue the importance of smaller, specialized journals, and no single metric can serve as a perfect assessment of a journal's value or worth. This article provides a brief overview of various publication metrics, including the Scopus CiteScore, Eigenfactor®, and Altmetric attention score, using examples from the Oncology Nursing Forum. It also addresses the use of the Oncology Nursing Forum as a resource for research and answering clinical questions.
