About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The scope of the Asian / Pacific Island Nursing Journal (APINJ) includes, but is not limited to:

1.) Methods, interventions, instrumentation, and educational techniques;
2.) Theoretical foundations that increase understanding of underlying mechanisms for changes in health and illness;
3.) Biopsychosocial, spiritual, and ecological impacts on practice, education, and research; and
4.) Policy issues as a result of rigorous research outcomes.

APINJ submissions which may not have a strong nursing component, but do closely align to the Sections in APINJ, and research representing Asian American/Asian/Pacific Islands will be considered for publication.

APINJ offers authors a rapid and thorough peer-review, professional copyediting, and professional production of PDF, XHTML, and XML proofs. This journal adheres to the same quality standards as our flagship journal, the Journal of Medical Internet Research.

Asian / Pacific Island Nursing Journal (APINJ) is indexed in National Library of Medicine (NLM)/MEDLINE, PubMedPubMed CentralDOAJ, Scopus, Cumulated Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), and International Academy of Nursing Educators (INANE) directory of nursing journals.
