Cancer Nursing Practice aims to inform and to encourage critical reflection among those nurses caring for patients with cancer by publishing articles with clear implications for practice. We welcome contributions to the various sections of the journal, including opinion, resources, features, continuing professional development and careers. Articles should be informative, have something new to say or offer a fresh approach to an old subject, challenge current practice or review current thinking.


One of the best ways of understanding how to write articles is to read a selection of those published in Cancer Nursing Practice. Submissions can be literature reviews, original research, descriptions of practice, case studies or letters to the editor. Cancer Nursing Practice also seeks to encourage new authors.


Do not think writing for publication is too difficult or that no one will want to read what you have to say. You may want to publish for several reasons: to share knowledge and advance your field of practice, to disseminate key findings or opinions, or to contribute to policy debates. In all cases, it is advisable to contact the editor to discuss your ideas. For more advice email the editor, Lisa Berry, at or call +44 (0)20 8872 3169.
