The ANS Blog provides a forum for discussion of issues raised in the articles published in ANS. We welcome all authors and readers to post your comments and ideas on the blog!
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.
Each issue of the journal includes articles focused on a current topic; the list of forthcoming issue topics in on the ANS web site. We also welcome “general topic” manuscripts that address the broad purposes of the journal. Manuscripts are submitted to be considered for publication on the journal’s Editorial Manager web site. For more information about submitting a manuscript, see the ANS Information for Authors.
