On-going CFS: Biology Reviews for Nursing Research

Nursing Research invites integrative reviews of current advances in basic biological sciences and translational research relevant to emerging areas of nursing science. Areas of interest include but are not limited to topics in: genetics, genomics, and epigenetics; systems biology/integrative physiology; neuroscience and imaging; computational biology; microbiology and the human microbiome; nanoscience; physiology in situ and mobile health devices.

Biology Reviews for Nursing Research will provide up-to-date information about advances in these thematic areas to the global community of nurse scientists, with the aim of infusing new biological and “omics” knowledge into nursing research. Reviews should summarize and critically evaluate the current state of knowledge. Implications for nursing research in relevant areas should be addressed, especially with respect to the priority research addressing prevention and treatment of disease and disability; symptoms and symptom management of acute and chronic illnesses; interventions for compassionate end-of-life and palliative care; infectious disease and global health; and integration of biological and behavioral perspectives on health over the lifespan across priority areas.

Papers accepted for Biology Reviews will be published as features in regular issues of Nursing Research.

Queries are encouraged and should be sent to Dr. Susan Henly, Editor (henly003@umn.edu).

Information for Authors is available at: http://journals.lww.com/nursingresearchonline/_layouts/1033/oaks.journals/informationforauthors.aspx.

Nursing Research is indexed or abstracted in Medline, CINAHL, JCR Science Citation Index, PsychInfo and Thomson Reuters Web of ScienceSM.
