The purpose of this study was to examine articles in ISI-ranked nursing journals and to analyse the articles and journals, using definitions of international and article content. Background. Growing emphasis on global health includes attention on international nursing literature. Contributions from Latin America and Africa have been reported. Attention to ranked nursing journals to support scholarship in global health is needed. Method. Using an ex post facto design, characteristics of 2827 articles, authors and journals of 32 ranked nursing journals for the year 2005 were analysed between June 2006 and June 2007. Using definitions of international and of article content, research questions were analysed statistically. Findings. (a) 928 (32 center dot 8%) articles were international; (b) 2016 (71 center dot 3%) articles were empirical or scholarly; (c) 826 (89 center dot 3%) articles reflecting international content were scholarly or empirical; (d) among international articles more were empirical (66 center dot 3% vs. 32 center dot 8%; chi 2((1)) = 283 center dot 6, P < 0 center dot 001); (e) among non-international articles more were scholarly (29 center dot 9% vs. 22 center dot 7%; chi 2((1)) = 15 center dot 85, P < 0 center dot 001; 22 center dot 7%); (f) 1004 (78 center dot 0%) articles were international, based on author characteristics; (f) 20 (62 center dot 5%) journals were led by an international editorial team; and (g) international journals had more international articles (3 center dot 6% vs. 29 center dot 2%; chi 2((1)) = 175 center dot 75, P < 0 center dot 001) and higher impact factors than non-international journals (t = -14 center dot 43, P < 0 center dot

This article reviews the nature and use of the journal impact factor and other common bibliometric measures for assessing research in the sciences and social sciences based on data compiled by Thomson Reuters. Journal impact factors are frequently misused to assess the influence of individual papers and authors, but such uses were never intended. Thomson Reuters also employs other measures of journal influence, which are contrasted with the impact factor. Finally, the author comments on the prop...

Summary Science in Latin America has experienced vigorous growth in the past decade, as demonstrated by the fact that the Latin American share of the world’s scientific publications increased from 1.8% in 1991 – 1995 to 3.4% in 1999 – 2003. Significant growth has also taken place in the numbers of PhDs in science and engineering (S&E) awarded in Latin American countries in recent years, including those in the natural sciences. Importantly, albeit at different rates, growth has been verified in a...

The replication of important findings by multiple independent investigators is fundamental to the accumulation of scientific evidence. Researchers in the biologic and physical sciences expect results to be replicated by independent data, analytical methods, laboratories, and instruments. Epidemiologic studies are commonly used to quantify small health effects of important, but subtle, risk factors, and replication is of critical importance where results can inform substantial policy decisions. H...

The recent and rapid growth of technology during the last several years has dramatically increased the number of new online degree programs and courses in the United States. As a result, enrollment into these online programs and courses has also increased. The United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) estimated there was a total of 12.2 million enrollments in college-level credit-granting distance education courses in 2006–07. A study by the Department of Education (2011) found that fr...

Medical writing is sometimes criticized for excessive use of the passive voice. The purpose of this study is twofold: (i) to provide quantitative descriptions of how the passive voice is used in medical journals and (ii) to assess the impact of style guidelines encouraging use of the active voice. From a corpus of 297 primary research articles published in the top five medical journals, we extracted 19,691 passive constructions. Analyses show that guidelines have a significant effect on use of t...
