Deadline Extended to November 15, 2010
– Call for Papers –
Canadian Journal of Nursing Research has long provided an important venue for nurses in Canada and other countries to explore research and theory related to the ethical dimensions of nursing practice. Over the past 13 years the Journal has published three themed issues related to ethics (1997: Values and Decision-Making; 2002: Ethics, Values, and Decision-Making; 2007: Focus on Ethics, Values, and Decision-Making). This Call builds on that history, inviting research papers that explore nursing ethics in relation to philosophy and/or nursing theory. As Franco Carnevale notes in his guest editorial for Volume 39 No 4 (2007), our profession needs more “explicit attention to empirical-normative relations in nursing inquiry” (p. 15). Some of the most pressing empirical and normative questions facing us today are rooted in systemic inequities in access to resources for health and health care in Canada and around the globe. Further, as cost constraints proliferate in health-care delivery there are concomitant challenges to the moral agency of nurses and other health professionals. For this issue on philosophy, theory, and ethics, we invite papers that explore research and theorize on concepts such as social justice and moral agency.
