Editorial Policy

The mission of the Latin American Journal of Nursing (RLAE) is to contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge and professional practice in nursing and other health areas through the publication of articles of relevance, interest, quality and originality that contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge and to the nursing and health practice.

The journal receives manuscripts in English, Portuguese or Spanish, in the categories Original Article, Review Article and Letters to the Editor, priority being granted to the Original Articles. The journal adopts the rolling pass system. Peer review is adopted as the assessment process, preserving the anonymity of authors and reviewers.

The RLAE follows the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors, the Committee on Publication Ethics – COPE guidelines, and  the National Research Ethics Commission - CONEP guidelines, the registration policies for clinical trials of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). Like the ICMJE and the EQUATOR Network, RLAE defends initiatives to enhance the presentation of research results by stimulating authors to use international guidelines in the preparation of manuscripts on randomized clinical trials, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, observational studies in epidemiology and qualitative studies (Randomized clinical trial - CONSORT checklist and flow chart, Systematic reviews and meta-analyses - PRISMA checklist and flow chart, Observational studies in epidemiology – STROBE checklist , Qualitative studies - COREQ checklist and Other types of study - SQUIRE guide).

RLAE condemns plagiarism and self-plagiarism and strongly discourages the submission of multipart papers and partial results of the same research as well as of papers with data collected more than three years ago.
