At the INANE Annual Meeting in August, 2014, there was discussion about student papers that are submitted to nursing journals. A group of editors convened to further explore this issue and its implications for scholarly publishing. The first step is to gather some data which is being done via survey. We would appreciate it is INANE members could take a few minutes to answer our survey questions, candidly and honestly. The survey can be found here. We will be reporting on our findings at the INANE 2015 meeting in Las Vegas, NV.
