The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation has published the Australian Journal of Advanced Nursing since 1983. In 2020, the World Health Organization-designated Year of the Nurse and Midwife, we are pleased to introduce the new-look journal along with new guidance for authors for preparing their publications for submission. The Australian Journal of Advanced Nursing will continue the journal’s previous character and aligns and advances the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation’s overall strategic objectives as Australia’s largest professional nursing and midwifery organisation. The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation’s diverse and dispersed membership works in many sectors including but not limited to public and private health, aged care, schools, tertiary education, research, the community, and disability care across a wide variety of metropolitan, regional, and remote locations. Accordingly, the Australian Journal of Advanced Nursing will seek to showcase and promote a wide variety of original research and scholarly work to inform and empower nurses, midwives, and other healthcare professionals to improve the health and wellbeing of all communities and be prepared for the future. We look forward to working with authors, readers, and our Editorial Board to enhance the reach, readership, and profile of the Australian Journal of Advanced Nursing.
