JHNS received articles in an original research paper, review paper, case study, case studies, image in nursing, and correspondence. The detail is:

Original research paper

The original research paper is an article that reports detailed research and is classified as primary literature. Its format includes an introduction and background problems, hypotheses, methods, results, interpretation of findings, and discussion sections. This paper is generally long, with a word count ranging from 3000 to 6000.

Review paper

A review paper is an article that provides an up-to-date report on the current situation regarding certain important topics in nursing. It discusses previous development on the topic and gives an overview of the future. In general, a review paper is usually long, ranging from 3000 to 5000 words or even more, depending on the case being reviewed.  

Case study

A case study is an article compiled by practitioners presenting details of unique cases in nursing being handled. The cases are usually those that contribute significantly to the knowledge in the field. This article is expected to discuss the signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and problem-solving. 

Image in Nursing

Image in nursing is an article compiled by practitioners presenting details of unique cases. The article should present pictures related to nursing care. The picture is expected to contribute to the care.


Correspondence is interesting and timely scientific or academic comments and clarifications on original research papers published in the journal. These comments should be based on knowledge contemporaneous with the original paper, rather than subsequent scientific or academic developments.


Perspective articles are intended to provide a forum for authors to discuss models and ideas from a personal viewpoint. They are more forward-looking and/or speculative than Reviews and may take a narrower field of view.


Paper identity

The title should be short and simple. After the title of the manuscript, followed by the names of authors and affiliation. Last is the complete contact information for the corresponding author, including the email address.

The abstract section is created in a single paragraph. The first sentence generally states the purpose of the experiment and the next sentence explains how the investigation is conducted. The next sentence presents an overview of the experimental results and the last sentence describes the significance of the results and their impact on the field of study in general. Add 3-6 strong keywords.

The introduction of a manuscript includes a brief overview of the literature relating to the research topic. The introduction is generally written descriptively, beginning with a broad topic and slowly focusing on the work being done. An introduction usually requires several paragraphs beginning with one or two paragraphs that introduce the reader to the field of the problem under investigation in general. Then, in the next paragraph explains something more specific. The last paragraph is very important, which is about what experimental questions will be answered by a study and how to do it.

The research method contains a direct description of the methods used in a study. The method contains the statement of the materials used in the study, the main procedures, the techniques used in the data retrieval, and the analysis techniques. If the research uses a particular experimental design, the method part also includes the design/setup of the research. Similarly, for literature research, theoretical or modeling components are also clearly contained in this section.


The results present experimental data to the reader. The results (which are also research findings) are generally presented in tables and figures that are interesting and clear. All figures and tables need further explanation to reveal the truth.


This section of the discussion contains interpretations of research results to give meaning to the reader or provide guidance for further research.

The conclusion contains a summary of the research findings. Then, is followed by the main points of the discussion. A general conclusion ends with a statement about how the research work contributes to the field of study as a whole.

Author’s declaration
The authors declare the role and process of manuscript preparation. For manuscript preparation, all the authors read and approved the final version of the paper.

The authors describe the funding received during the study.

Availability of data and materials
The author explained the availability of data from the authors.

Competing interests
The authors declare no competing interest.

This section contains a statement of funding sources for the research work. This section also contains gratitude to those who contributed to the research and preparation of the manuscripts.

This section lists all the references cited in the text. JHNS uses APA style. Citation and reference systems must use Reference Management Systems such as Mendeley, EndNote, and Zotero. 



Please write your text in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these).
