Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the Journal of Pediatric Nursing: Health Care Transition for Adolescents and Emerging Adults with Special Health Care Needs and Disabilities

Issue Editors:

Imelda Coyne, RCN,RGN, RSCN, PhD, and Maria E. Ferris, MD, MPH, PhD

The Journal of Pediatric Nursing is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication (September/October2015) of a focused issue on health care transition (HCT) for adolescents and emerging adults with special health care needs and disabilities.

Advancements in science, technology, and practice have led to improvements in the life expectancy of children and youth diagnosed with special health care needs or disabilities wherein 90% now survive into adulthood. Data on the long-term biopsychosocial outcomes of these adults reveal health and lifestyle challenges, such as the emergence of secondary conditions, preventable condition-related complications, higher rates of unemployment, postsecondary underachievement, and lower levels of self-reported quality of life.

In response to this growing problem of unmet needs for comprehensive health services for adolescents and emerging adults who leave pediatric and child-oriented systems of care, HCT has emerged as a distinct field of interprofessional specialty science and practice. It is timely to feature articles that address the myriad of health and psychosocial issues associated with HCT.

We invite authors to submit papers that address the biopsychosocial issues pertaining to HCT practice and research. We are interested in reviewing papers on the development and implementation of interprofessional service models and programs; issues associated with adolescents and emerging adults as they participate in the HCT process; interprofessional issues; self-management; access to health, social, employment, and community services; and parent and sibling issues.

We welcome research, clinical practice, reviews, and theoretical papers.

Authors can include links to websites, applications, or demonstrations; video demonstrations up to 3 minutes; audio files; and multiple photos, forms, documents, or figures that illustrate the text.

Manuscripts should be submitted to ees.elsevier.com/jpediatrnurs by March 1, 2015.

Authors should consult the Guide for Authors there and use the Article Type “Special Issue—Health Care Transitions” when uploading submissions.

Content queries can be directed to Imelda Coyne at coynei@tcd.ie or Maria Ferris at maria_ferris@med.unc.edu.

Submission questions can be sent to Editor in Chief Cecily Betz at cbetz@chla.usc.edu.

Call for Papers: The Journal of Science and Law

As an online, open-access journal, JSciLaw aspires to be at the forefront of research that bridges disciplines and uses large-scale data analysis to influence public policy. Additionally, it is actively seeking to publish scholars at every stage in their career. Please consider JSciLaw for your next paper.

Many of today’s policy questions require an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from fields such as neuroscience, biology, and statistics. Researchers today are presented with new technologies to gather data and novel techniques for data mining. However, innovative scholarship often fails to leave its subspecialty and reach an interdisciplinary audience, dulling its impact and preventing other disciplines from capitalizing on new findings.The Journal of Science and Law (JSciLaw) seeks to address this problem as an interdisciplinary publication that provides a forum for scholarship at the intersection of scientific research and legal policy. JSciLaw aims to unite disciplines and to encourage collaboration between scientific researchers, legal scholars, and policy makers. Reflecting its interdisciplinary nature, the JSciLaw editorial board includes scholars from the fields of neuroscience, law, criminology, statistics, and policy.

JSciLaw promotes top-tier, peer-reviewed scientific research that matters for policy decisions. Reflecting that mission, we are pioneering in-house journal software that allows JSciLaw to incorporate large-scale data directly into its manuscripts, such that reported results are replicable and extensible. In this way, readers are not forced to simply believe the claims of research papers published in JSciLaw, but can analyze the data themselves.

The journal is open-access, with all articles available for free at JSciLaw.org. Because we are an online journal, we are de-emphasizing word limits in deference to quality: articles should be as long as they need to be (but no longer). We publish Original Research Articles, Reviews, Opinions, and occasionally, Book Reviews. Papers are published on a rolling basis as soon as they are accepted.

JSciLaw encourages you to submit your innovative research and to explore our research articles in the future. If you have any questions, you can contact the editorial board at editors@jscilaw.org.

The Advances in Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (ABBE) Book Series publishes research on all areas of bioinformatics and bioengineering including the development and testing of new computational methods, the management and analysis of biological data, and the implementation of novel engineering applications in all areas of medicine and biology. Through showcasing the latest in bioinformatics and biomedical engineering research, ABBE aims to be an essential resource for healthcare and medical professionals.

Biomedical Informatics is an area that is spreading exponentially among several healthcare organizations. This phenomenon is happening due to the need that exists in these organizations to improve the quality of the healthcare delivered. The Biomedical Informatics is fully capable to accomplish this mission. Issues as the Business Intelligence (BI) in healthcare, CDSS and the information management are not only reducing the amount of paper in health organizations, but also reducing the occurrence of clinical and administrative errors. The implementation of BI tools in healthcare organizations help the managers and the healthcare professionals in the decision making process. The analysis of data provides relevant information about the activities and processes that happen inside the organization and this information can be essential to the patient diagnosis.

BI tools are capable of working with healthcare data in an efficient manner, to generate real-time information and knowledge and this is the reason why they are very attractive to the healthcare sector. The principal benefits of BI technology are the saving of time in the access and in the analysis of data, the flexibility and the improvement in decision- making by using information driven from real data. However a BI system must be able to perform two fundamental tasks: integrate huge amounts of data coming from several different heterogeneous sources and provide the analytical tools for these data analysis. Thus there is a need to build BI tools adapted to the medical field and to the specificity of data that exists in these organizations.

This book looks to discuss and address the difficulties and challenges that healthcare organizations have faced in implementing BI technologies and applications. The editors will seek chapters that address new BI systems, mainly to serve as Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS), and also real study cases. Additionally, the book will explore the impact of such technologies in healthcare organizations.

Objective

This publication aims to disseminate the Biomedical Informatics concepts, namely the use of Business Intelligence and its newest applications, to the scientific community. Consequently, it may inspire researchers to develop new solutions to healthcare organizations in order to improve the quality of medical care and the patients' quality of life.
