CJNR is an online only, peer-reviewed, quarterly journal published by the McGill University School of Nursing since 1969. With world-wide circulation, CJNR's primary mandate is to publish original nursing research that develops basic knowledge for the discipline and examines the application of the knowledge in practice. Research related to education and history is also welcomed, as are methodological, theoretical, and review papers that advance nursing science. Commentaries about published articles are encouraged.

Authors uncertain as to the fit between their ideas in progress and the journal's mandate are invited to send a letter of inquiry to cjnr [dot] nursing [at] mcgill [dot] ca.


Researchers in health, educators, administrators and clinicians in nursing, policy makers, graduate students.
