Instructions for authors

Long-Term Care Nursing (Pielęgniarstwo w Opiece Długoterminowej) is an international quarterly which has been published since 2016. The original version of this scientific journal is its digital edition; however, all the issues will be published in a full-text paper version, too.

The journal contains reviewed original papers (research and clinical trial papers), review articles and case studies describing chronic conditions which people of all ages suffer from. Those who deal with such conditions include specialists in medicine, health sciences and physical education sciences. Also, our quarterly presents letters to the editor, editorials, book reviews, conference reports and material as well as congress and conference announcements.

This scientific journal is intended for nursing circles and other professionals who work in the fields of healthcare, cosmetology, social welfare and education, and whose scientific research centres on chronically ill people, taking into account biological, psychological, social, organisational, didactic and economic aspects.

All the rules contained in the Declaration of Helsinki and Interdisciplinary Principles and Guidelines for the Use of Animals in Research, Testing and Education are obeyed by the editorial board of the quarterly. Consequently, the board expect all research presented in the quarterly to be approved by the appropriate local Ethical Committee. Each paper needs to include a piece of information about such approval being granted. As of 1 January 2020, papers to be published in the journal will accepted only via the Editorial System (https://www.editorialsystem.com/pwod).
