Welcome to Nursing Open

Roger Watson, Editor

Welcome to Nursing Open and welcome to our blog. Nursing Open is a new online, open access, pay to publish journal. You can check our aims and scope and guidelines for authors on our new website. There you can also listen to me on YouTube telling you about the journal and what we hope to achieve, and you can read my inaugural editorial. By way of introduction to me you can read ten interesting things about me on the Journal of Advanced Nursing (JAN) blog here. In due course we will introduce you to each of the Associate Editors of Nursing Open in the pages of this blog.

The purpose of this blog is to give me and the Associate Editors the opportunity to write about things that interest us and which may interest you and help inform you about what is going on in the journal and in the world of academic nursing publishing. We will also highlight particular articles that have especially interested us. I hope you will follow the blog and that you will follow us on Twitter. You can also keep up with Wiley Open Access on Facebook. The blog also affords you the opportunity to join in the debate.

Enjoy the blog, read the journal and please consider Nursing Open for your next publication.
