Journals in nursing and health


Another popular magazine in the health care field is the Journal of Advanced Nursing. It often used in literature lists on nursing educations. It is available in printed format from 1983-2002 (with a gap for the year 1990). It is found on the 1st floor in our roller shelfs, shelf V: 16. We have access to more years of the magazine electronically from 1976 onwards via Wiley-Blackwell. Since the library has purchased so-called backfiles it is possible to find material from the 1970s and onwards. Journal of Advanced Nursing has no embargo which means we have access to the latest content without delay. Journal of advanced nursing contains scientific material in english and is a leading journal in the field. Most of the articles are written by nurses and midwives. The electronic versions are available via the library’s web with full text links from Summon.
