School of Nursing launches online open-access journal – Yfile

November 19, 2018

An innovative online open-access journal at York University that was collaboratively developed by members of the Faculty of Health’s School of Nursing, as well as critical nurse scholars across the country, will launch on Nov. 20.

The journal Witness: The Canadian Journal of Critical Nursing Discourse is rooted in an ethos of social justice and advocacy, according to the journal’s co-managing editors, Professors Cheryl van Daalen-Smith and Simon Adam.

The journal is being launched with the release of the journal’s inaugural call for papers with the theme “See it …. Speak it….. Write it….. Change it….”

There is a rich history of critical discourse and practice in Canada; discourse and practice gleaned from what Canadian nurses witness regarding health, health care and the quality of life of individuals, groups and populations. This journal addresses the need to formalize a scholarly space for critical nursing discourse that is rooted in such ideas as social justice, intersectionality, advocacy and critical social theory.
