Pertinent Features Keep You Up-to-Date

Clinical Nursing Research
offers the following special features and articles that concentrate on nursing practice:

  • RESEARCH ARTICLES... Presentations of current research, with discussions on the applicability of its findings to the clinical setting.
  • INTERNATIONALLY REFEREED FEATURE ARTICLES... This section encourages contributions from various continents and enhances the network potential of Clinical Nursing Research throughout the international community. It includes commentaries by referees on continents other than that of the article's author(s). Referees' comments examine the use of research findings in their own environments and identify possible cultural biases or health-care issues that could diminish the universal applicability of the findings.
  • RESEARCH BRIEFS... Short research reports that focus on various aspects of practice.
  • REPLICATION STUDIES... Unique to Clinical Nursing Research, these studies replicate existing research and compare the findings, providing valuable information for clinicians committed to introducing research findings into their practice.
