Call for Papers for a Special Issue of JNP: The Journal for Nurse Practitioners: Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases

JNP: The Journal for Nurse Practitioners is planning a special issue on emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, especially infections that are impacted by our global community or are associated with long-term or serious sequelae. Widespread travel impacts not only the nature of infections encountered by nurse practitioners but also treatment options. Primary care nurse practitioners need to be aware of these infections and understand how to prevent, screen for, diagnose, and treat them. They also need to appreciate the role of primary care in the diagnosis and treatment of these infections and recognize when specialty referral is appropriate.

If you have expertise in infectious diseases or a particular infection, we invite your submission of an article to this issue, which will publish in early 2015. The guest editor is Ann Marie Hart, PhD, FNP-BC, associate professor and DNP program coordinator at the University of Wyoming.

We are interested in the following topics:

-- Pandemic Influenza

-- C. Difficile

-- Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus

-- Sexually transmitted diseases

-- Shigella/shigellosis

-- Coronavirus

-- Ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis

-- Measles

-- Infectious meningitis

We are seeking feature articles (4,000 to 5,000 words inclusive) and brief reports (2000-2500 words) that describe the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of global or serious infections, as well as the role of primary care versus specialty care providers in their management. Authors may also 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/jnp by August 15, 2014. Authors should consult the Guide for Authors there and use the Article Type “Special Issue—Infectious Diseases” when uploading submissions. Queries can be directed to Marilyn Edmunds, Editor in Chief, at jnpeditor@aol.com.

Call for Papers: LGBT Health

LGBT Health is the quarterly peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting optimal healthcare for millions of sexual and gender minority persons worldwide by focusing specifically on health while maintaining sufficient breadth to encompass the full range of relevant biopsychosocial and health policy issues. This Journal aims to promote greater awareness of the health concerns particular to each sexual minority population, and to improve availability and delivery of culturally competent healthcare services. LGBT Health also encourages further research and increased funding in this critical but currently underserved domain. The Journal provides a much-needed authoritative source and international forum in all areas pertinent to LGBT health and healthcare services. Contributions from all continents are solicited including Asia and Africa which are currently underrepresented in sex research.

LGBT Health facilitates and supports the efforts of researchers, clinicians, academics, and policymakers to work toward improved health status and healthcare delivery for all segments of the LGBT community and other sexual or gender minorities. Spanning a broad array of disciplines, the Journal brings together the research, clinical, and health advocacy communities to overcome barriers to healthcare and other current challenges, as well as to expand options for treatment and prevention.

LGBT Health coverage includes:

• Health concerns of individual sexual and gender minority populations

• Health concerns as impacted by age, race, ethnicity, religion, nationality and geographical region

• Health issues in intersex conditions and disorders of sex development

• Transgender-specific health issues, including those of transgender children and adolescents

• Mental and physical health impact of stigmatization

• Healthcare disparities and barriers to care related to sexual and gender minority status
