WESTERN JOURNAL OF NURSING RESEARCH
Provide a descriptive manuscript title of no more than 12 words.
Number all pages, beginning with abstract page and including references, tables, and figures. Research reports may be 16 pages, review articles generally may be 20 pages, and grantsmanship papers may be 7 pages. (Title page, abstract, references, tables, and figures do not count towards total.)
Do not use bold or italics in the manuscript for text other than headings, subheadings, and references. Use one inch margins and 12-point typeface. Double space the entire document including tables and references. Do not include line numbers. Use three or fewer abbreviations in the manuscript text. Additional abbreviations may be necessary in some complex tables.
Prepare a blinded manuscript file that does not contain any author information. Do not include a title page in this file. When blinding references, replace the citations and author list with “Authors,” but retain the rest of the reference entry for reviewers.
Include an abstract in paragraph form without citations as the first page of the manuscript file in addition to filling in the required abstract text box on the online system. Abstracts should focus on methods and results, with much less space devoted to background and discussion. Limit the abstract to 150 words. Do not use headings or abbreviations in abstracts. Include four to five keywords at the bottom of your abstract for indexing. Use MeSH terms if possible.
The organization for WJNR research reports is as follows:
Tables and figures are encouraged when they convey information not presented in the text. Tables andfigures should display unique information; do not report the same information in figures and tables. Figures are optional, must be camera-ready, and black and white; WJNR does not publish color figures. No more than one figure per page. APA rules mandate that each table have only one kind of data (e.g., do not place frequencies and continuous data in the same table). Produce tables in word processing programs and eliminate any dividing lines within tables. Group tables and figures at the end of the manuscript file or in a separate file. Avoid tables longer than one page. Research reports should contain no more than 3 tables or figures total, but exceptions are possible. Review articles may contain additional tables.
Review papers should address health problems or nursing practice issues with high significance for many patients or nurses. Reviews should synthesize previous findings as well as suggest future research and practice. Review articles should be organized in a manner consistent with the content area and have appropriate headings and subheadings. The extent of previous research determines the number of references and tables.
WJNR is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
