The Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health (JMWH) has received the great honor of being inducted into the International Academy of Nursing Editors’ (INANE) Nursing Journal Hall of Fame. In August, JMWH Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Frances E. Likis, CNM, DrPH, FACNM, FAAN traveled to the 37th INANE Annual Meeting in Boston to accept the award on behalf of the Journal and ACNM. The Nursing Journal Hall of Fame was established in 2018 to recognize scholarly nursing journals that have made continuous contributions to nursing knowledge and have had 50 or more years of continuous publication. JMWH was one of 13 journals inducted into the Nursing Journal Hall of Fame’s inaugural cohort. The 13 inaugural journals are international in scope and cumulatively represent 978 years of scholarly publication. The journals are a cross section of clinical practice, research, education, and leadership, and they demonstrate depth in nursing and midwifery excellence and scholarship through the published literature. JMWH is proud to be among this extraordinary list of scholarly journals! JMWH is the official journal of ACNM, and the Journal shares a rich history with ACNM that documents the evolution of midwifery and women’s health care in the United States. JMWH’s publication history extends back to 1955 when it was the Bulletin of the American College of Nurse-Midwifery. In 1973, the Journal’s official name was changed to the Journal of Nurse-Midwifery, with another name change to the Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health in 2000. Today, JMWH is a peer-reviewed journal that presents new research and current knowledge across a broad range of clinical and interdisciplinary topics including maternity care, gynecology, primary care for women and newborns, public health, health care policy, and global health. With a focus on evidence-based practice, JMWH is dedicated to improving the health care of women throughout their lifespan and promoting excellence in midwifery. The entire archive of published JMWH content all the way back to 1955 can be accessed on the Journal website at www.jmwh.org.
