Nursing: Journals

Finding a Journal

Is the journal peer-reviewed?

There are many ways to check whether a journal is peer-reviewed.  You can check the Peer-reviewed box in CINAHL's Advanced Search, for example. We have a database about journals, UlrichsWeb.  In some cases, it's necessary to look at the journal's website.  Ask for help, as needed.

Ranking Nursing Journals

I like Scimago also, but their rankings for Nursing make no sense, except that Nurses use a wide range of health sciences journals.

Digital Object Identifiers (DOI's)

Have a DOI and need to find the article?

Type or paste a DOI name (e.g., 10.1000/182) into the text box below.


Have the citation and need to find its DOI?

Go to the CrossRef Simple Text Query page, paste your reference in the box provided and click on "Submit" to obtain the DOIs, when available. Note: Some articles WILL NOT have a DOI.
