[ganm] International Journal of Africa Nursing Sciences - submit today to this exciting new journal!

Dear colleague,

The International Journal of Africa Nursing Sciences (IJANS) is a new, open access, international scientific journal published by Elsevier. The broad-based journal is founded on two key tenets, i.e. to publish the most exciting research with respect to the subjects of nursing and midwifery in Africa, and secondly, to advance the international understanding and development of nursing and midwifery in Africa, both as a profession and as an academic discipline.

The fully refereed journal will provide a forum for all aspects of nursing and midwifery sciences, especially new trends and advances. The journal calls for original research papers, systematic and scholarly review articles, and critical papers which will stimulate debate on research, policy, theory or philosophy of nursing as related to nursing and midwifery in Africa and technical reports, and short communications, all of which will meet the journal's high academic and ethical standards. Manuscripts of nursing practice, education, management, and research are encouraged. The journal values critical scholarly debate on issues that have strategic significance for educators, practitioners, leaders and policy-makers of nursing and midwifery in Africa.

The journal will seek to publish the highest quality scholarly contributions reflecting the diversity of nursing. It is also inviting international scholars who are engaged with nursing and midwifery in Africa to contribute to the journal.

The IJANS is an open access journal and in 2014 there will be no publication charges for any author.


The Editor, Dr Hester Klopper (CEO, FUNDISA and President, STTI), welcomes submissions at  http://ees.elsevier.com/ijans/
