CALJ-ACRS is thrilled to welcome our newest journal member, Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière (QANE-AFI)!
QANE-AFI is an online, open-access journal that aims to address questions and issues related specifically to quality advancement in nursing education. Many themes are addressed in the journal, including the assessment, indicators, and standards of quality nursing education, the evaluation of program modality outcomes, and the nature and key elements of educational quality. QANE-AFI's readership includes academic nurse educators, both Canadian and international, nurses in clinical settings, researchers in health higher education, and nursing students.
QANE-AFI joined CALJ-ACRS because they wanted their journal to be in good company! They believe that being a member will help them keep informed of best practices and link them to other Canadian academic journal editors and journals so that they can learn what is happening in regards to scholarly publishing in other research areas that can be applied to nursing education.
When asked what the pressing issues are for their journal currently, Jessica Pearce, managing editor of publications at QANE-AFI, stated that "Academic research and publishing, especially in nursing, is entering a new phase of inclusivity and openness. We want to ensure that we are staying abreast of the changes to maintain an accessible journal. More practically, and as I’m sure everyone else is, we are always working to get and keep good peer reviewers."
QANE-AFI is a bilingual journal that is completely open access with no fees or embargo periods. They are listed in CINAHL and the DOAJ and are archived at Library and Archives Canada. They publish three times annually, with a biennial special edition.
