The Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science (The Council; CANS) has now established a Research Journal Editors Special Interest Group (SIG) to support the CANS organizational aim to share, translate, and disseminate nursing science. CANS members who are also editors or associate editors of research journals or other journals that publish research are welcome to join the SIG. The SIG will provide collegial support for its editor members and education for State of the Science (SOS) conference attendees. The SIG also will serve as a source of expertise for leaders of The Council, and through them for members, on the dissemination of nursing research in scholarly journals. The SIG may be called on by CANS leadership for advice on issues and changes in the scholarly publishing world and may provide selected resources and information to CANS members on publishing issues facing nursing scholars.
Maggie Kearney, Editor of RINAH, and Sue Henly, Editor of Nursing Research, are Co-Chairs of the SIG and available as liaisons between the SIG and members of INANE. We encourage editors who are CANS members to contact us to join the SIG email list and share thoughts and ideas. Click here to contact Maggie; click here to contact Sue.
