Article Content

Advances in Nursing Science (ANS) and Nursing Research (NR) are pleased to announce a collaborative initiative that will feature articles focused on health disparities. ANS invites manuscripts that address a broad range of theoretical, methodologic, ethical, and philosophic issues related to health disparity knowledge development. NR invites manuscripts that report research findings that contribute knowledge about health disparities, including methodologic concerns specific to working with marginalized groups, and cross-cultural research. The focus of each journal is not exclusive. Research findings and underlying conceptual or philosophic issues can be included in manuscripts submitted for either journal.


We encourage research teams to submit complementary manuscripts to each journal simultaneously, but complementary submissions are not required. The Editors welcome e-mail or telephone discussions with potential authors.


The deadline for manuscript submissions is January 1, 2005. The companion issue of each journal will be published in September/October 2005.
