CJNR Digital Archive


We are pleased to announce the launch of the CJNR digital archive, an online archive available through the McGill University Library, and hosted by the McGill University Library Digital Collections Program in perpetuity. This archive has been made possible through a Richard M. Tomlinson Digital Library Innovation and Access Award to the McGill School of Nursing.

The Richard M. Tomlinson award recognizes the ongoing contribution and commitment the CJNR has made to the McGill School of Nursing, and to the development and nursing science in Canada and worldwide. We hope this archive proves to be an invaluable research tool for researchers in Nursing and other faculties.

Important information for researchers using the archive:

The first issue of CJNR was published in 1969 as Nursing Papers/Perspectives en nursing by Dr. Moyra Allen of the School of Nursing, McGill University, for the purpose of exchanging ideas related to nursing research and education. In 1988 it was renamed the Canadian Journal of Nursing Research/Revue canadienne de recherche en sciences infirimières. In 1992 the name of the journal was shortened to CJNR/RCRSI and in 2003 it was renamed CJNR. The digitial archive is comprised of all of these names and this should be kept in mind when conducting a search for information.

Presently the digital archive includes all issues from 1969 to 2003. The archives will be continually updated with respect to a three-year moving wall, meaning that all CJNR publications up until the most recent three years will be available. These more recent volumes will be available through our on-line subscription provider, Ingenta Connect, at www.ingentaconnect.com.
