Specifically, we welcome high quality research (including quality improvement studies), systematic literature reviews, case reviews, and evidence-based practice section/column commentary. Relevant manuscripts may focus on military members, military families and caregivers, veterans, or veteran families and caregivers as the population or sample; include military or veterans as a measured characteristic to test hypotheses or predictive models; include military treatment facility, veteran hospital, or military environment as the setting; or advance interventions, clinical techniques, theories, concepts, leadership, or evidence-based practices rooted in or derived from military/veterans affairs innovation or science. Randomized control trials, novel intervention development and feasibility testing, rigorously designed quality improvement studies, systematic review with meta-analysis, and case reviews will be prioritized.

Please see our current collection of Military Community and Veteran Health papers for published exemplars. Please see our Author Instructions for more information. Submit a manuscript directly to the Journal of Emergency Nursing.

Call for Case Reviews

Case reviews report unfolding, individual patient data that integrates best-practice evidence with clinical reasoning mastery relevant to emergency care. The Journal of Emergency Nursing prioritizes publication of case reviews that provide insights on rare disease, unusual presentations of common disease, decision making in the context of multiple morbidities, novel treatments, or the identification of unusual adverse or beneficial effects of diagnostics or therapeutics. Other case reviews to enhance the clinical reasoning of novice emergency nurses on standards of care will also be considered. Authors are strongly encouraged to adhere to the Equator Network’s CARE Guidelines, Checklist, and Resources before submitting to the Journal of Emergency Nursing. Case reviews must adhere to Elsevier’s Patient Consent policy for publication.

Case Review Section: Submit a manuscript directly to JEN.
