The current issue of ANS marks the beginning of the 40th year since ANS first appeared in print! This first 40th-volume issue features cutting-edge scholarship that builds on previously published work in ANS, and in doing so points toward the future of nursing scholarship and practice. Throughout the coming year we will celebrate many of the articles published over the past 40 years – works that have enduring significance for the discipline.
Watch for our “Editor’s Pick” articles over the next several weeks, read the articles, and visit our ANS Blog to share your comments.

The primary purposes of Advances in Nursing Science (ANS) are to advance the development of nursing knowledge and to promote the integration of nursing philosophies, theories and research with practice. While the journal provides scholarly articles that have relevance for all health-related disciplines, we are particularly committed to claiming nursing’s rightful place in the development of health knowledge. We expect high scholarly merit and encourage innovative, cutting edge ideas that challenge prior assumptions and that present new, intellectually challenging perspectives. We seek works that speak to global sustainability and that take an intersectional approach, recognizing class, color, sexual and gender identity, and other dimensions of human experience related to health. Manuscripts can be based on any methodology, including scholarly inquiry/research, philosophic and theoretic analysis/synthesis, integrative reviews, and original exploration of diverse approaches to creating nursing knowledge. All submissions must include a statement that addresses the significance of the work for the evolution of the discipline of nursing.
