SAGE Global Qualitative Nursing Research
While weekly there are reports of still another online open-access journal scam, often brought to our attention by Jeffrey Beall’s ScholarlyOA Web site, we are pleased to report the launch of a reputable new online open-access journal from a respected publisher and edited by a distinguished scholar.
SAGE Publications’ Global Qualitative Nursing Research (GQNR) is described as “a groundbreaking new international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal focusing on qualitative research in the field of nursing. The Journal specializes in topics important to nurses: nursing, care, health, and illness. GQNR will publish research articles, qualitatively-driven mixed-method designs, meta-analyses, and articles focused on methodological development. Special sections include Ethics, Methodological Development, Developing the Theoretical Base of Nursing, Establishing Evidence, and Application to Practice. As an open-access, author-pays journal, GQNR will be published online-only, unrestricted by frequency or page limits and governed solely by submissions, editorial integrity, and content value. Of importance, we can also post, with the published article, videos, photos, interviews, appendices, and other supplemental data, and even a non-English copy of the article.”
Edited by Dr. Jan Morse, GQNR seeks submissions. Details here: http://www.sagepub.com/journals/Journal202291
