New theme issue on Nurses and Midwives in Digital Health for the JISfTeH in 2020
To the chairs and members of the ISfTeH Working Groups
To the members of ISfTeH,
We have an opportunity to prepare a themed edition of the Journal of the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (JISfTeH). The ISfTeH Working Group of Women WoW) has prepared two of these special issues of the journal in 2015 and 2017, each including 4 to 7 papers, and their most recent one will be available shortly.
2015: http://journals.ukzn.ac.za/index.php/JISfTeH/issue/view/10 (pdf: http://www.m2025-weobservatory.org/uploads/3/9/5/1/39512321/jsfteh_vol3.pdf)
2017: http://journals.ukzn.ac.za/index.php/JISfTeH (pdf: http://www.m2025-weobservatory.org/uploads/3/9/5/1/39512321/jsfteh2017.pdf)
The Journal is only available online and the editors are working diligently to establish its place among credible and referenced journals.
Our themed issue would be about telehealth nursing, of course. The editors are very determined to have papers that reflect “science” by which they mean well-done research with intent to produce substantive findings that will contribute to the evidence that drives health care delivery.
Next year, 2020, is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. We are proposing to you and to the journal editors that we put together 4 to 6 publishable research papers in a Special Telehealth Nursing Edition of JISfTeH that would be available early in 2020 (January or February). The papers would all reflect some aspect of telehealth/telenursing. To begin this process, we are asking all of you to consider submitting an abstract that represents the essence of your publishable research paper. If you are hesitant to reveal all of your research work and findings in JISfTeH, you could consider using a part of your work for this paper. The abstract and paper should be in the traditional research format: introduction/problem addressed; research purpose, research question(s)/hypotheses, sample, setting, data collection methods, data analysis methods, results/findings, discussion, conclusions and recommendations.
All articles submitted must be authored by nurses or midwives, as principal author.
The language will be English.
Abstracts are accepted until 15 September 2019 to claudiabartz388[at]gmail.com or veronique.thouvenot[at]gmail.com
Submissions should be done before 30 November 2019
Submissions follow the JISfTeH guidelines:
