Focus and Scope

Belitung Nursing Journal (BNJ) is a refereed international publication that provides a venue for nursing scholarship with an Asian focus and perspectives from the region. BNJ aims to highlight evidence on nursing science, nursing management, nursing and healthcare policy, nursing education, and nursing practice in Asian communities worldwide to a broad international audience.

BNJ welcomes submissions of original research, review article, theory & concept development, perspectives, letter to editors, research methodology papers, study protocols, case studies, and guest editorials on various clinical and professional nursing topics from 49 countries in Asia (according to United Nations).

BNJ also welcomes negative results (e.g., studies that do not support a hypothesized difference or association), provided the design is robust.

Nurses and midwives write most papers in BNJ. There are no constraints on authorship as long as articles fit with the expressed aims and scopes, especially for implications for nursing science, management, and practice. 

BNJ's intended readership includes practicing nurses and midwives in all spheres and at all levels who are committed to advancing practice and professional development based on new knowledge and evidence; managers and senior members of the nursing and midwifery professions; nurse educators and nursing students; and researchers, scholars, and scientists in other disciplines with interest in common issues and inter-disciplinary collaboration.
