'It’s a triumph to have two nurse leaders at top level'


I have already noted my observations in previous comments that there is a distinction between NT which is described as a magazine and a professional journal. This has a very unfortunate influence on the quality of the articles published. The question also arises as why the editor demonstrates a constant need to have a photo of herself at the top of the webpage and whether this presents a good professional image to the current an a prospective readership? When a good clinical article does appear it is subscription only which is the publishers right but unlike professional journals there is no facility for the purchase of single articles often required by researchers. As a researcher on a tight budget I have to exclude all these articles, a few of which may have increased my knowledge base, as I am nowhere near a library and if I take out a subscription, I would give preference to a professional nursing or medical journal. Furthermore, in professional journals it is usual for the editorial board to publish a brief resume of their qualifications, background, experience and area of specialization. I have looked for this on several previous occasions when reading articles by them to question their connection to the nursing profession. On seeking clinical or other information from an article it is important to know the exact source and on whose authority the statements in it are written beyond merely a name or an editorial title.
