Nursing Open launches!

Nursing Open launch cover

Wiley is delighted to announce the launch of its newest open access journal, Nursing Open, the first open access journal to publish high-quality articles covering all aspects of nursing, from education and research through to policy and practice.

Editor Roger Watson was present at the launch which took place at the prestigious Royal College of Nursing’s International Research Conference last week.  Professor Watson is based at the University of Hull and has extensive experience working with older people, and in particular the feeding and nutritional problems faced by patients with dementia.

“Nursing Open aims to provide integrity and speed in publishing a wide range of high quality nursing scholarship and, within a short time, to be the preferred destination for open access articles in nursing.” said Professor Watson.

In what could be one of the most important launches in the nursing field for years, Nursing Open aims to have a positive impact on health, from local and regional to national and global scales.  The journal provides authors with a new platform for the rapid dissemination of research on nursing and midwifery practice, and will make a real and valuable contribution towards the science of nursing. The journal will publish articles under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) License, allowing authors to comply with Open Access Mandates.

Nursing Open is now open for submissions. For more information on the journal, including how to submit an article, please visit the website at:
