E-Journal Bonus Article

New feature to the Journal—the E-Journal Bonus Article! You will find in this issue the first E-Journal bonus article. This article will only be found in the E-Journal and replaces the online prepublished articles that NEHA used to publish. These online prepublished articles were made available to NEHA members via the Bookstore and My NEHA and were subsequently published in the January/February issue. Now members can access these articles through their E-Journal issues and NEHA will no longer publish the large compendium issue. The E-Journal gives NEHA the ability to provide you with another peer-reviewed article in a timely and convenient manner while eliminating the costs related to publishing the large compendium issue. It is our hope that authors and readers alike will see the benefits of the E-Journal bonus article. And of course, members will be able to access the article online via the link below.
