In recent years, there has been a growing acceptance that reporting guidelines are effective in improving the communication of research methods and findings, providing a more transparent and rigorous account of the design and procedures of research (Altman & Moher 2014). Academic journals play a key role in helping to increase the overall quality of research literature by demanding full and transparent reporting (Altman & Simera 2014). In the Journal of Clinical Nursing, we strive to disseminate the highest quality original research to a wide audience of nurse academics, clinical nurses, researchers and policy makers.
