Aims and Scope

Aim and scope

The primary aim is to promote a high standard of clinically related scholarship which advances and supports the practice and discipline of nursing and midwifery. Nursing and Midwifery Studies (eISSN: 2322-1674) also aims to promote the international exchange of ideas and experience that draws from the different cultures in which practice takes place. Further, Nursing and Midwifery Studies seeks to enrich insight into clinical need and the implications for nursing and midwifery intervention and models of service delivery.  

We publish high quality papers from across the methodological spectrum that make an important and novel contribution to the field of clinical nursing and midwifery (regardless of where care is provided), and which demonstrate clinical application and international relevance.

Topics include but are not limited to

  • Nursing and midwifery research to enhance patient safety and reduce harm to patients;
  • The nature of nursing and midwifery need, intervention, social interaction and models of service delivery;
  • Clinical nursing and midwifery leadership;
  • Development of clinical research, evaluation, evidence-based practice and scientific enquiry;
  • Patient and family experiences of health and health care; illness and recovery;
