Mapping the Literature of Nursing
The NAHRS Task Force on Mapping the Literature of Nursing was formed in 1999 as a collaborative research project to map the literature of nursing disciplines.
The rationale for the project was recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of nursing and the need to improve information transfer and encourage knowledge base development for nursing. By using a common bibliometric method to investigate the literature of individual fields, the project seeks to to:
- identify core journals
- determine bibliographic coverage
- influence database producers to improve access
