3. Describe potential solutions to shared problems regarding efforts to publish high quality nursing research reports.
Abstract: Editors of nursing journals and nurse scientists have worked hard to develop strong platforms for research dissemination. Current forces may facilitate or threaten this progress. Panelists will provide an introduction to analyzing some of these forces and discuss implications for nurse editors. Panelists will introduce a framework for the session and act as moderators, and participants will drive the session discussion.
Topics open for discussion include but are not limited to: (a) questions about reporting replication studies and studies with negative findings; (b) when publishing pilot work is worthwhile; (c) the deteriorating state of statistical tables; (d) expectations regarding the reporting of sound mechanisms of action; (e) the extent which guidelines such as CONSORT, PRISMA and COREQ are or should be used; (f) images as results; and (g) use of supplemental digital content. The goals of this session are to share common concerns and solutions and to emerge with beginning plans for future work through INANE to continue supporting the shared goal of enhanced dissemination of high quality research results.
