CFS: A Day in the Life of . . . (Home Healthcare Nurse)

Home Healthcare Nurse is a refereed journal, published 10 times/year. In January 2015 the title of the journal will change to Home Healthcare Now to reflect the interprofessional nature of home healthcare. The goal of the journal is to bring up-to-date and practical articles to home healthcare and hospice providers. Topics include practice-oriented clinical topics, literature reviews, manuscripts that describe quality improvement projects, innovations or new approaches to patient care, and case studies. Some clinical topics of interest are (but not limited to): MS, ALS, diverticulitis, Lyme disease, smoking cessation, gut microbes, osteoporosis, Parkinsons, reflux esophagitis, COPD, fibromyalagia, post-polio syndrome and complementary treatments.

Home Healthcare Nurse is also seeking submissions for a column titled “A Day in the Life of…” The purpose of this column is to introduce readers to the wide variety of roles in home healthcare, and to highlight the typical work day of home care clinicians around the country and world to educate the readers on the work they do, the area in which they work and the people they serve. Manuscripts should be 600-1000 words. Prospective writers should feel free to email me with their ideas at HHNEditor@gmail.com

Nursing Research: Calls for Papers
http://journals.lww.com/nursingresearchonline/Pages/callforpapers.aspx

•       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 and marked with a banner for the “Biology Review Series.”

•       Point-of-Care Research Series
Nursing Research invites papers reporting findings from original point-of-care research studies. Topics include but are not limited to use of devices and information technology at the point-of-care, patient safety issues, m-health, telehealth, system interoperability, design and evaluation of “smart” environments across the health-illness continuum, learning health systems; communication and decision making  in emerging technology-supported point-of-care settings; quality and ethical issues. Papers may be enhanced to include video or interactive graphs using supplemental digital content.  Submissions may be regular full-length papers or research briefs. In the letter to the editor uploaded with submissions, please mention that the paper should be considered for the point-of-care research series.

There is no deadline for submission; accepted papers will be published in regular issues and marked with a banner for the “Point-of-Care Research” series.

CFP: Indigenous Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Special issue of Advances in Mental Health

Indigenous Mental Health and Suicide Prevention
Abstracts – due: 1 April 2015
Deadline for Papers: 1st June 2015
Details at: http://amh.e-contentmanagement.com/archives/vol/14/issue/1/call/
Edited by Dr. Anton Isaacs (Monash University) and Prof. Pat Dudgeon (University of Western Australia)
This issue will focus on solutions rather than problems encountered by Indigenous people. It is widely accepted that Indigenous people face significant barriers in seeking help and accessing mental health and social and emotional wellbeing services. Suicide rates for Indigenous people are of grave concern, being twice that of other Australians. In addition, the pervasive nature of high psychological distress levels in the community has resulted in Indigenous suicide becoming a public health problem. At this moment in time the greatest need is to highlight service models, programs and strategies that have the potential to make a difference to the current landscape.
We are looking for research articles, case studies and reviews of such services and models for this issue with the aim of providing a foundation on which to develop result oriented, transferable and sustainable public health programs.
Preference will be given to co-authored papers between Indigenous and non Indigenous people, specifically addressing possible solutions rather than repeating the problem.
Abstracts – due: 1 April 2015 to the coordinating editor: Anton.Isaacs@monash.edu

Abstracts should clearly state:
What is already known about the topic?
What this paper adds?
Manuscript submissions – due 1 June 2015
Authors should follow guidelines available at: http://amh.e-contentmanagement.com/page/87/submit-papers

CFS: SAGE Global Qualitative Nursing Research

SAGE Global Qualitative Nursing Research

While weekly there are reports of still another online open-access journal scam, often brought to our attention by Jeffrey Beall’s ScholarlyOA Web site, we are pleased to report the launch of a reputable new online open-access journal from a respected publisher and edited by a distinguished scholar.

SAGE Publications’ Global Qualitative Nursing Research (GQNR) is described as “a groundbreaking new international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal focusing on qualitative research in the field of nursing. The Journal specializes in topics important to nurses: nursing, care, health, and illness. GQNR will publish research articles, qualitatively-driven mixed-method designs, meta-analyses, and articles focused on methodological development. Special sections include Ethics, Methodological Development, Developing the Theoretical Base of Nursing, Establishing Evidence, and Application to Practice. As an open-access, author-pays journal, GQNR will be published online-only, unrestricted by frequency or page limits and governed solely by submissions, editorial integrity, and content value. Of importance, we can also post, with the published article, videos, photos, interviews, appendices, and other supplemental data, and even a non-English copy of the article.”

Edited by Dr. Jan Morse, GQNR seeks submissions. Details here: http://www.sagepub.com/journals/Journal202291
