The aim of Emergency Nurse is to inform and encourage critical reflection among current and aspiring emergency nurses leaders by the publication of articles with clear implications for practice. We welcome contributions to the different 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 old subjects, challenge current thought or practice or predict future trends.


We encourage new authors for Emergency Nurse and one of the best ways to understand how to write articles is to read a selection of those already published in the journal. These can be literature reviews, original research, descriptions of practice or case studies. We also welcome letters for publication.


You may have several reasons for wanting to publish: to share knowledge and advance a field of practice, to disseminate important findings or opinions, or even to contribute to topical policy debates. In all cases, it is advisable to contact the managing editor, Nick Lipley, to discuss your ideas and to obtain extended author guidelines. For more advice, email him at or telephone him directly on 020 8872 3166.
