CFS: Independent Contracting

Special Issue: “Freelancers and Independent Contractors”

Small Enterprise Research: The Journal of SEAANZ

Deadline for Papers: 30th November 2014

Volume 22 Number 2 2015 – ISSN: 1321-5906

Edited by: Dr Tui McKeown (tui.mckeown@monash.edu) and Robyn Cochrane (robyn.cochrane@monash.edu.au) Monash University, Australia

APRNs, nursing scholars researching professional issues, and nurses in consulting are invited to submit papers for this special issue of Small Enterprise Research devoted to Freelancers and Independent Contractors.

The world of work has seen the downsizing and outsourcing of work that once took place as part of a conventional employer-employee relationship. However, today there are a significant number of self-employed independent contractors or ‘freelancers’ working with and within organisations. The concept of a ‘freelancer’ remains vaguely defined in law and poorly understood within the academic literature. Definition of this type of micro-enterprise is also poor with the word ‘freelancer’ used in conjunction with ‘independent contractor’ and other terms. This special issue seeks to understand the nature, characteristics, contributions and challenges facing the freelancer. It also seeks to identify current research activity and directions for future research into this important and growing form of small business.

On-going CFS: Biology Reviews for Nursing Research

Nursing Research invites integrative reviews of current advances in basic biological sciences and translational research relevant to emerging areas of nursing science. Areas of interest include but are not limited to topics in: genetics, genomics, and epigenetics; systems biology/integrative physiology; neuroscience and imaging; computational biology; microbiology and the human microbiome; nanoscience; physiology in situ and mobile health devices.

Biology Reviews for Nursing Research will provide up-to-date information about advances in these thematic areas to the global community of nurse scientists, with the aim of infusing new biological and “omics” knowledge into nursing research. Reviews should summarize and critically evaluate the current state of knowledge. Implications for nursing research in relevant areas should be addressed, especially with respect to the priority research addressing prevention and treatment of disease and disability; symptoms and symptom management of acute and chronic illnesses; interventions for compassionate end-of-life and palliative care; infectious disease and global health; and integration of biological and behavioral perspectives on health over the lifespan across priority areas.

Papers accepted for Biology Reviews will be published as features in regular issues of Nursing Research.

Queries are encouraged and should be sent to Dr. Susan Henly, Editor (henly003@umn.edu).

Information for Authors is available at: http://journals.lww.com/nursingresearchonline/_layouts/1033/oaks.journals/informationforauthors.aspx.

Nursing Research is indexed or abstracted in Medline, CINAHL, JCR Science Citation Index, PsychInfo and Thomson Reuters Web of ScienceSM.
