The Purpose of the CJNI

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

VOL 1 NO 2 SUMMER 2006

By June Kaminski, RN MSN PhD(c), Editor in Chief


Organizations such as the Canadian Nurses Association encourage nurses across Canada to learn, share, research, and create informatics-related projects and experiences that can help to boost the competencies, theory, and practice of informatics on a national level. To support these endeavors, the idea of a Canadian Journal of Nursing Informatics (CJNI) was conceived to become an on-line publication available to anyone interested in the evolving field of nursing informatics.

To provide an expert foundation and management team, an Editorial Board has been configured. This issue features brief biographies of each of our Board members. As you view these bios, you will notice the high level of nursing informatics expertise and experience that is shared by this amazing Board. The Board is ready to work with authors to showcase their work in an expert and professional manner. In the coming months and years, we intend to develop the CJNI into a dynamic vehicle to disseminate Nursing Informatics research both in Canada, and around the globe.

This journal’s journey is just beginning. We intend to fashion useful columns that will focus on new ideas and breakthroughs in informatics in practice, education, research and administration. We will provide various reviews of pertinent informatics books, software, web sites, nursing information systems, multimedia and other resources. We will also solicit academic, research, and practice related papers, presentations, and detailed abstracts that present new work done in the informatics field. Opinion pieces, essays, and news announcements will also be included.

To make this journal all it can be, we encourage You to consider submitting some of your work for future issues. Please take some time to view the Call for Submissions and Manuscript guideline pages.

CJNI Editor In Chief,

June Kaminski
