Nursing Times inducted into nurses’ journal ‘hall of fame’

  • 1 Comment

Nursing Times has been inducted into an international “hall of fame” for publications that have made significant contributions to the profession’s “knowledge”.

The Nursing Journal Hall of Fame has been created by the International Academy of Nursing Editors (INANE).

The list of journals is a new initiative that was started at this year’s INANE conference in Boston in the US, which took place on from 6-8 August.

According to INANE, the purpose of the hall of fame is to recognise journals “with 50 or more years of continuous publication and sustained contributions to nursing knowledge”.

In total, 13 journals were among the first group to be recognised as hall of fame designates this year, including Nursing Times, which was founded in 1905.

The official journal of the International Council of Nurses – the International Nursing Review – was also recognised by the academy as one of its inaugural recipients.

The INR is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal, which focuses predominantly on nursing and health policy issues, and has been published since 1953.

INR editor Professor Sue Turale said: “Induction into the global Nursing Journal Hall of Fame is a well-deserved recognition of the hard work of nurses over the years, in many lands and at every level of the profession.”

The Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Journal of Nursing Education, both published by SLACK Incorporated, also featured on the academy’s inaugural list.

Funding for the inaugural awards was provided by Shirley Smoyak, editor emeritus of the Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and and a long-time INANE member.

INANE is an all-volunteer organisation whose members include editors, publishers, and others involved in the dissemination of nursing knowledge through the scholarly literature.

Established in 1982, INANE hosts an annual meeting and maintains an active mailing list, Facebook page, and Twitter account for its members.
