Purpose:To evaluate the extent of an international perspective in publication in nursing journals. Design:Characteristics of 2,581 articles, authors of articles, and journals (editorial purpose and editorial team) of 42 high-ranking nursing journals for the year 2000 were analyzed. Methods:The characteristics were assessed using seven operational definitions of “international.” Findings:Major findings were: (a) 747 (28.9%) articles were identified as international, of which (b) 705 (94.3%) were placed in the scholarly or empirical categories; (c) more articles were categorized as empirical in the international articles; more articles were categorized as scholarly among the noninternational articles; (d) 763 (79.3%) articles met an international definition based on author characteristics; and (e) 20 (47.6%) journals had international editorial teams. Conclusions:Nearly 30% of articles had international content. Articles with international content were more frequently databased than were noninternational articles. The study provides a baseline indication of the extent of international perspectives in published articles in nursing journals. The extent to which these international articles make substantial contributions to knowledge has yet to be discovered.

: To help others succeed in getting their work published, the authors share findings from a survey of 83 journal editors. The main reasons cited by editors for rejecting manuscripts are discussed. Facts about journal foci, acceptance rates, time from submission to acceptance, time lag between final copy submission and publication, preferred editorial styles, web site addresses, and e-mail submissions are included in the tables. The primary steps from writing to publication are also reviewed.

External influences placed upon nurses working in universities and in clinical practice require them to attract research funding, carry out research, generate new knowledge and publish in national and international journals. While there does not appear to be an agreed, unified body of nursing knowledge, critical and scholarly debate is essential to generate knowledge, but this is not an activity in which the majority of nurses can effectively participate. Nevertheless, nurses in the Western worl...

Purpose: To replicate a 1992–1993 study of the characteristics of English-language nursing journals originating in countries other than the United States and to compare findings. Such information heightens awareness of publishing opportunities globally and enhances dissemination of information throughout the world. Design: Descriptive survey with a questionnaire mailed to 159 editors of nursing and nursing-related journals. Data about the publication year, 1995, were collected from April 1996 th...

N ursing Outlook readers who are interested in developing collections of nursing books and journals need no introduction to the list of 355 books and 84 journals that follows the Brandon/ Hill list. More than 18 years have elapsed since Alfred N. Brandon and I published the first "Selected List of Nursing Books and Journals" in Nursing Outlook in 1979.1 The positive response over the years by both nurses and librarians has been overwhe lming . We have been genu ine ly pleased that our work has b...

A survey was conducted to learn about characteristics of English-language journals originating in countries other than the United States. Questionnaires were mailed to editors of 102 nursing journals; more than half responded. Information about 42 journals, from 14 countries, pertains to characteristics of the journals, their leadership, review process, and journal staff. Such information expands our awareness of publishing opportunities in a global society.

Eight active supervision scholars provide their perspectives on priorities for advancing research in clinical supervision. Based on proposals they presented at an invited symposium held during the 11th International Interdisciplinary Conference on Clinical Supervision, the authors propose research questions around multicultural identities, supervisor expertise, supervision models, and research methods. Although neither a comprehensive nor exhaustive list of priorities, the authors hope the artic...

Aim To reveal some of the unexpected occurrences that can arise during real-life investigations to upset the conventional research process. Background As novice investigators develop their careers, they are increasingly likely to encounter aspects of research that are rarely mentioned in nursing textbooks. This paper sets out several such occurrences that may challenge the researcher and the practical consequences for an unsuspecting investigator.

The qualitative label `international journal' is used widely, including in national research quality assessments. We determined the practicability of analysing internationality quantitatively using 39 conservation biology journals, providing a single numeric index (IIJ) based on 10 variables covering the countries represented in the journals' editorial boards, authors and authors citing the journals' papers. A numerical taxonomic analysis refined the interpretation, revealing six categories of j...
