Clinical Nursing Research

An International Journal

eISSN: 15523799 | ISSN: 10547738 | Current volume: 33 | Current issue: 5 Frequency: 8 Times/Year

Clinical Nursing Research (CNR) is a leading international nursing journal, published eight times a year. CNR aims to publish the best available evidence from multidisciplinary teams, with the goal of reporting clinically applicable nursing science and phenomena of interest to nursing. Part of CNR’s mission is to bring to light clinically applicable solutions to some of the most complex problems important to nursing. This requires the efforts of diverse investigative teams. CNR publishes articles that are of interest to all the following disciplines: nursing, psychology, social work, medicine, exercise science, public health, physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, pharmacy, engineering, sociology, anthropology, health communication, and computer science. CNR invites submissions of original research, literature reviews, methodologies/methods, applied theoretical papers, and brief reports on a variety of health issues. Editorial and commentary manuscripts are typically invited. However, unsolicited editorial and commentary manuscripts will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Authors should query the Editor-In-Chief prior to submission of editorials and commentaries. Papers on any and all populations and settings in which nurses practice at any level are especially invited.

CNR does not accept papers on the study of nurses, nursing students, or students in the health professions unless clinically relevant patient outcomes are key outcomes and measured accordingly.

Clinical Nursing Research is a refereed journal publishing research articles that focus on nursing practice. It disseminates research findings of particular interest to practicing nurses, provides an international forum for discussion among clinical nurse researchers and by identifying practical applications of research, enhances practice. Manuscripts of interest to CNR are those that focus on assessment and/or measures of intervention effectiveness for application in practice settings. CNR does not publish research on nurses. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
