PITMAN, NJ - Fueled by an intense demand for scholarly resources in nursing informatics, the American Nursing Informatics Association (ANIA) has launched a new peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of Informatics Nursing (JIN).
The digital journal will be published quarterly and will include a wide variety of research studies, Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) articles, and other topics relevant to nursing informatics practice. The first issue is available online at www.ania.org/publications/journal.
Informatics nurses blend the science of information technology with nursing practice. These highly skilled professionals work in hospitals and health care systems; ambulatory care and home health; industry, government and military; and many other settings. They are also academicians and researchers. Nursing informatics is one of the fastest growing areas of nursing today.
“ANIA responded to the increasing need to share scholarly ideas and research among informatics nurses and other professionals,” said JIN Editor Elizabeth C. Elkind, PhD, MSN, MBA, RNC-OB. “Keeping ANIA members and health care professionals up to date is tremendously important to quality patient care, safety, data management and cost-effective health care practices.”
ANIA’s previous publication, Nursing Informatics Today, had been receiving an increasing number of manuscript submissions as well as a wealth of scholarly ideas and research for publication, according to Elkind. She said the next logical step for members and readers was to produce a journal that reflects the innovations of a rapidly evolving field.
“The journal is committed to nurturing new authors and giving established authors a forum to share their knowledge,” Elkind said. “We’ve also incorporated publishing sessions into the ANIA Annual Conference.”
JIN will be published by Jannetti Publications, Inc., the publishing division of Anthony J. Jannetti, Inc., a national health care association management, marketing, communications, and publishing firm located in Pitman, NJ.

The first issue is available publicly and for free. The journal will be provided to ANIA members and subscribers electronically in a “Dynamic Edition” format, which allows bookmarking, searching by keyword, printing and social sharing.
The journal is included as one of the benefits of ANIA membership ($79 fee; visit www.ania.org to join). The non-member JIN subscriber price is $100, and the institutional subscriber price is $200.
