Instructions to authors of peer-reviewed articles

Peer-reviewed articles

Peer reviewed articles are based on research, summaries, and theories. Peer-review is double blind, the author does not know the identity of the reviewer nor does the reviewer know the identity of the author. The process is designed to assess the validity, quality, and the originality of articles for publication.

Educational and social articles

Educational articles pertain to all subjects of nursing and are based on scholarly literature. The journal also publishes interviews with nurses. The social section of the journal addresses matters such as wages and events pertaining to the Icelandic Nurses’ Association.
