It’s my honor to be invited by Professor Naohiro Hohashi to serve as the Deputy Editor for the Journal of International Nursing Research (JINR). JINR is a brand new page transformed from the Journal of Japan Society of Nursing Research (JJSNR) which has a long lasting history in publishing nursing journals in Japanese. It’s indeed my great honor to be a part of JINR, and have a share of it at this historic moment.

Changes are never easy. Taking a lead to make a change is even harder. I appreciate the courage from the Japan Society of Nursing Research to make a change, and am willing to witness such a change not just from an observer’s perspective, but from a participant’s point of view.

While such a change is just a beginning of the journey, I appeal to all you to join our journey, no matter which nursing specialty you are in. Setting as a new platform to us, JINR welcomes a wide range of submissions, including original research, practice guidelines, technical report, brief report or letter to the Editor.

With the concerted effort from the Editorial Committee, I hope together we could create a greater and higher impact in the region and towards the globe.

Preface to the First Issue of Journal of International Nursing Research

Kiyoko Fukai, PhD, RN, PHN
President of Japan Society of Nursing Research
Graduate School of Nursing, The Jikei University, Japan

The Japan Society of Nursing Research (JSNR) was founded in 1970 with its predecessors, the Four National University Research Councils. In 1981, the name was changed to its current academic society name (JSNR), and it was established as Japan’s first comprehensive academic organization for nursing science. This society aims to organize people who are widely involved in nursing science, to conduct nursing-related educational and research activities, to contribute to the progress and development of nursing science, and to contribute to the society. Our specialty, Research in Nursing, deals with various phenomena related to “human beings, health, environment, and nursing (care).” In particular, the purpose of Research in Nursing is to explore and propose hints and clues (theories) for people to live healthier and more prosperous. In other words, nursing science is a human and practical science that is close to people, which cannot be achieved without actually living people.

The most important project of this society, “Journal of Japan Society of Nursing Research (JJSNR),” was first published in 1978 as a journal written in Japanese centered on original papers, and a total of 44 volumes have already been published to date. JJSNR has published many valuable academic papers and has made a great contribution to the development of nursing science in Japan. The only challenge was that the valuable evidence could only be read in Japanese.

Therefore, in December 2021, the international journal, which was longed for by not only members of our society but also nurse scientists all over Japan, will finally be established. Nursing is a science that contributes to practice (applied science); therefore, papers written in Japanese are useful for busy practitioners. However, if details of high-quality nursing research that contributes to practice can only be read in Japanese, it cannot be utilized as a new finding shared by the entire world of the nursing academia because there are no borders in philosophy. Thus, the Journal of International Nursing Research (JINR) is established as a new step in the history of JSNR.

Lastly, we would like to express our deep gratitude to Dr. Naohiro Hohashi, Editor-in-Chief, for his great efforts in issuing JINR. This journal would not have been established without the efforts of Dr. Hohashi. We would also like to thank the staff of Kyorinsha for their devoted cooperation. We are looking forward to the first issue of JINR, which will be published in December 2021. We do welcome postings from nurses (practitioners, educators, or researchers) not only in Japan but all from other countries worldwide, as well as scientists engaged in nursing research. We hope that the papers published in JINR will be actively utilized by many scientists and practitioners worldwide.

Announcing the Launch of Journal of International Nursing Research

For all of us in the nursing professions, we are on the verge of a new beginning. In 2021, the Japan Society of Nursing Research (JSNR), a nursing study group with a long and distinguished history, will launch Journal of International Nursing Research (JINR) as an international English-language publication.

As the founding editor-in-chief of JINR, it is my great honor to be associated with this important undertaking. In connection with the inaugural edition of JINR, I would like to express my thanks to the support of the directors and auditors of JSNR, as well as to all of you who contributed your time. In particular, I am indebted to JSNR President Kiyoko Fukai for her understanding that brought about the creation of this journal. In addition, I greatly look forward to collaborating with the JINR Editorial Committee and international reviewers.

Since 1978, JSNR has been publishing its Japanese-language periodical, the Journal of Japan Society of Nursing Research (JJSNR). The JJSNR can be considered representative of academic journals in Japan, with a long history and splendid traditions. From 2014 to 2018, and from 2020 to the present, I served as an editor-in-chief. In the past JJSNR has published a number of English-language papers, and in 2015 was declared a multilingual publication in Japanese or English. From that point in time, guidelines were put in motion for the future publication of an English-language journal. From past and present perspectives, publication of academic papers on nursing in English has become the common practice, and this has also figured in our decision to launch JINR. Concurrent to this, JJSNR will no longer be soliciting English-language papers for publication.

As an international English-language journal, JINR will function as an open-access journal, with the papers that have been accepted promptly made public. Its scope will cover wide fields of nursing research, operating as a comprehensive journal not limited to any particular fields of specialization. Some years in the future we are hoping to register with PMC (PubMed Central), with the content of our papers also appearing in PubMed.

JINR is open to submissions from around the world. It welcomes original contributions on nursing studies in a variety of formats such as Review Article, Original Research, Practice Guidelines, Technical Report and Brief Report. Instructions for contributors can be viewed on the JINR web site (https://www.jinr.jsnr.or.jp/).

JINR sees its role as contributing to the increasing development of nursing studies on a worldwide scale. In this regard, we are determined that our enthusiasm toward nursing studies will continue to burn brightly.

We extend the warmest of welcomes to aspiring contributors, as well as to our colleagues and associates around the world, and look forward to hearing from you soon.
