Ashley Weber, Mason Elder, Kristin C. Voos, Joshua W. Lambert, Heather C. Kaplan, and Yamile C. Jackson


"The article 'Clinician opinions and approaches to manage risk related to safe sleep during skin-to-skin care' (JOGNN, 49, 464-474) was one of seven articles nominated for the 2021 Best of JOGNN Writing Award. This is JOGNN’s premier award. The award will be presented during AWHONN’s 2021 Convention scheduled in October.   Although JOGNN’s Editors and Editorial Advisory Board did not choose your article to receive this year’s award, I extend my congratulations to you and your co-authors for your significant contribution to JOGNN’s excellence in 2020.  Your article was one of the best.  Criteria for award include originality of the work; clarity and scholarliness of the writing; potential to significantly affect the care of women, infants and/or childbearing families; and the interdisciplinary importance of the work.   Thank you for your contribution to nursing’s scholarly literature and particularly for your significant contribution to JOGNN in 2020.  Best wishes for continued professional success and I encourage you to consider JOGNN as a publication outlet in the future.
