The Nursing and Allied Health Resource section of the Medical Library Association (NAHRS) and the International Academy of Nursing Editors (INANE) are collaborating to survey editors of journals in which nurses publish. The purpose of this survey is to gather information that will assist prospective authors to select appropriate journals to submit their manuscripts. The results of the survey will be made available on the NAHRS and INANE websites.
This survey is part of a larger NAHRS journal project to create a list of nursing journals that contains: 1)information about the databases that index each journal; 2) availability of full text; 3) if citations are tracked by CINAHL, Scopus, or Web of Science; 4) percentage of research; 5) the journal URL; 6) writing style of the journal; and 7) other useful descriptive information. NAHRS envisions that this product will provide valuable information for: librarians, including decisions on subscriptions and database licensing; authors; editors; and journal publishers.
Your input will be very valuable for the success of this project. The journal list will be published on the NAHRS website, http://nahrs.mlanet.org/ with a link from the INANE site. We anticipate that it will be available by August, 2011.
We are reopening this survey and contacting publishers as well as INANE members to try and obtain data on more than 100 nursing journals on the NAHRS list whose editors did not respond. If you responded during the last two years, you may respond again if you think anything has changed.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
