CFS: ANIA Newsletter

ANIA Newsletter, the official newsletter of the American Nursing Informatics Association (ANIA), is a benefit of membership that includes clinical articles dedicated to advancing adult health nursing practice, clinical research, and professional development. Unless clearly specified, the views expressed in articles, columns, and letters published in ANIA Newsletter represent the opinions of the authors and do not reflect the official policies of ANIA. The newsletter accepts original articles, case studies, letters, descriptions of clinical care, and research. Query letters are welcomed, but not required. Material must be original and never published before. All clinical manuscripts submitted undergo review. Each manuscript is evaluated on its timeliness, importance, accuracy, clarity, and applicability to nursing informatics. Manuscripts accepted are subject to copy editing. The author will receive proofs for review prior to publication. Manuscripts not accepted for publication will not be returned to the author unless requested within 30 days of notification of rejection.

Manuscript Preparation: Manuscripts must be typed, double-spaced on 8.5” x 11” white paper, and should be 6-8 pages in length (including references). Style should generally follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed., 2010). Use the author-date method of citation within the text. For example, “(Doe, 2013)” or “Doe (2013) states…” With multiple authors, the first citation must list all authors (up to six), and subsequent citations should list only the last name of the first author and et al. (Doe et al., 2013). Prior to submission, a colleague should read the manuscript, if possible. Acquiring permission to reprint previously published materials is the responsibility of the author. Format of Manuscript: Title Page: Include the manuscript title, authors’ names, credentials, and a biographic statement. Also include a brief abstract of 40 words or less along with an address for correspondence, email address (required), and day and evening phone numbers. Text: Double-space all typing, using 1.5-2 inch margins. Include the title, or short descriptor, on top of each page, but do not include the author’s name. Subheadings: Include subheadings in the manuscript where possible. Type all subheadings flush to the left margin. References: Please limit references to 10-12 entries. All references should be from the last 3-5 years, when possible. List all references in alphabetical order. All citations should reference primary sources. The use of secondary sources (material analyzed or interpreted from the primary source) is discouraged. If necessary, locate a copy of the original work and credit it as such. Authors are encouraged to provide the digital object identifier (DOI) number for all references when possible directly after the citation. Manuscripts must NOT contain reference software codes.

Manuscript Submission: Authors should submit manuscripts via email (preferred), or on disk or CD-ROM. All disks should be clearly labeled with the author name, manuscript title, and file name. Software:As a general rule, all files should be saved as MS Word. General: Use only common fonts (CG Times, Universe, Helvetica, Courier, etc.) and avoid complex font attributes such as outline. All graphics (figures, graphs, etc.) must be submitted in cameraready form. Submit manuscripts to: ANIA Newsletter, East Holly Avenue, Box 56, Pitman, NJ 08071-0056,<>
