Write for Us

Evidence-Based Nursing is looking for authors to write commentaries for the journal. Authors need not have a PhD, but they should have experience in writing papers. We are also happy to commission less experienced authors if you have a more experienced colleague you can write with. Authors will ideally be nurses or midwives, but other healthcare professionals may register their interest.

Evidence-Based Nursing systematically searches a wide range of international healthcare journals applying strict criteria for the validity of research and relevance to best nursing practice. Content is critically appraised then the most relevant articles are summarised into a succinct expert commentary focusing on the paper’s key findings and implications for nursing practice. 

The aim of a commentary is to discuss, in no more than 800 words:

  1. The context of the problem addressed by the paper
  2. A brief description and critique of the methods, results & conclusions
  3. Implications for practice
  4. How the results fit in with what is currently known in the field

You can read free examples of a commentary on a research paper here and a commentary on a systematic review here.
