About International Diabetes Nursing

Journal Focus and Scope

International Diabetes Nursing is the official journal of the Foundation of European Nurses in Diabetes (FEND). It aims to publish and disseminate contributions to improve the care of people with diabetes. The journal is nurse-led, but multidisciplinary in scope, and provides a platform for nurses and other professionals working in diabetes care, to share knowledge and innovations. International Diabetes Nursing is a peer-reviewed publication that accepts original research articles, reviews, case reports, conference reports, professional papers, policy discussion papers, and other contributions as described in the journal Guidelines for Authors.

Topics of interest to the journal include the development and/or evaluation of interventions designed to improve diabetes care and outcomes; innovations in diabetes clinical practice; systematic reviews, meta-analyses and meta-syntheses of diabetes research; novel descriptions of clinical issues and problems; reports of the experiences and views of people with diabetes; care system and organisational development or evaluation; novel case reports with generalisable observations; methodological issues and developments of relevance to knowledge generation in diabetes care. 


Peer Review Process

International Diabetes Nursing follows a double-blind, peer review, on-line process, which is managed by the Editors through the Manuscript Submission system. International Diabetes Nursing has an international network of authors and readers. Reviewers are carefully selected from the worldwide research community. Unbiased consideration is given to all manuscripts submitted for publication regardless of the authors’ race, gender, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, political philosophy, sexual orientation, age or reputation. The decision to publish a paper is based on an editorial assessment and peer review.
