About the Special Issue
Public health as well as individual health is greatly influenced by the presence of conflict in the environment. Whether on the family level (domestic violence, firearm violence etc.) or on a community or country level (gang violence, war, forced migration, etc.) the peacefulness, or lack thereof, of an individual or community’s environment has a profound impact on health.
The Journal of Nursing Scholarship invites authors to submit original research manuscripts on health and conflict situations. We also request submissions for reviews that address how conflict situations influence health and nursing care.
Please refer to the special issue on Health and Conflict Situations in your cover letter.
Manuscripts should be submitted here.
Author guidelines are available here.
As you will see in reading the author guidelines, manuscripts must not exceed 20 pages, including abstract, body of text, references, tables, and figures. The author is responsible for compliance with APA format and for the accuracy of all information, including citations and verification of all references with citations in the text. Spelling may be in either American or British English.
