Global Qualitative Nursing Research

Global Qualitative Nursing Research (GQNR) is a groundbreaking new international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal focusing on qualitative research in the field of nursing. The Journal specializes in topics important to nurses: nursing, care, health, and illness. GQNR will publish research articles, qualitatively-driven mixed-method designs, meta-analyses, and articles focused on methodological development. Special sections include Ethics, Methodological Development, Developing the Theoretical Base of Nursing, Establishing Evidence, and Application to Practice.

As an open-access, author-pays journal, GQNR will be published online-only, unrestricted by frequency or page limits and governed solely by submissions, editorial integrity, and content value. Of importance, we can also post, with the published article, videos, photos, interviews, appendices, and other supplemental data, and even a non-English copy of the article.

When you publish in GQNR, you will benefit from:

• Rigorous peer review of your research
• Prompt Publishing
• Free availability of your article immediately upon publication
• Guaranteed targeted, multidisciplinary audience
• High visibility for maximum global exposure

An introductory Article Processing Charge (APC) of $500, discounted from the full rate of $995, is available for a limited time. Students are eligible for a special rate of $375. The APC is payable upon acceptance.
