RCNi produces 10 leading nursing journals supporting nursing students and registered nurses to deliver the best possible patient care. 

We welcome submissions from experienced and new authors on clinical topics, original research, literature reviews, service innovation or continuing professional development.

Author support

Our experienced editorial and administration teams ensure your article is handled professionally from time of acceptance to time of publication. The editor and production staff work closely with you to maximise the impact of your article.

If you have never had a paper published before, don’t worry – writing for one of our publications is not as difficult as you might think and you will receive plenty of guidance and support. 


Each of our journals is read by thousands of nursing students and registered nurses. We have more than 100,000 subscribers across all of our titles, accessing our content online as well as in print. Our articles are discoverable via a range of abstracting and indexing services. This means your article will have a real impact on nursing practice and patient care. Writing for us is one of the best and quickest ways of sharing your knowledge with the nursing community. 

Maximise the visibility and influence of your article through Kudos, a web-based sharing and search platform. Kudos allows you to add resources, such as slide presentations, and explain why your article is important. It makes your work more discoverable and you can view metrics associated with your published article. Read more about Kudos here

Promote your article globally. We can press-release your article through AlphaGalileo, a research-focused, international distribution service that delivers news to relevant audiences through its website, email updates, RSS feeds and apps. These press releases are frequently promoted on various web-based services, thereby increasing the visibility of your work. We can also promote your article through a range of social media.

Independent peer review

Our journals operate a thorough peer-review process using a panel of expert reviewers. Reviewers’ comments are fed back in a constructive way to ensure your experience with us is rewarding. This means your article has credibility with our readers and other nursing professionals.

Online submissions

You can use our online submission system to track the progress of your article through the review process. Help for new users is available from our administration department.
