1. Focus and scopeThe Nurse Media Journal of Nursing (NMJN) is a nursing journal that publishes the scientific works of nurses, academics, and practitioners. NMJN welcomes and invites original and relevant research articles in nursing as well as reviews (systematic and meta-analysis) and case reports. 2. General guidelinesManuscripts submitted to the journal are not yet published. NMJN does not accept any manuscripts which are also sent to other journals for publication at the same time. The writer should ensure that all members of his/her team have approved the manuscript for publication. Any research report on humans as the subject should enclosure the signed informed consent, and prior ethical approval was obtained from a suitably constituted research ethics committee or institutional review board. If any financial support was received or relationship(s) existed, the authors should mention that no conflict of interest of any financial support or any relationship or other exists during a research project. Those points should mention in the Cover Letter to the Editor of NMJN.3. Review processEach manuscript is reviewed by the editors, and if of a sufficient standard, sent for blinded reviewed by at least two editorial board members or reviewers who come from a range of countries as chosen by the journal team based on their expertise.
