We're very pleased to tell you that the Library has taken out two new online subscriptions to top nursing journals - Nursing Standard and Mental Health & Social Inclusion.

Nursing Standard

Nursing Standard (published by RCNi) is the UK's most widely read nursing journal. It provides you with the tools and information required to keep up-to-date on the latest best practice and meet the NMC's revalidation requirements. Nursing Standard publishes relevant and timely peer-reviewed articles and in-depth analysis of current nursing news and practice as well as 'ahead of print' clinical articles.

This individual subscription provides access to the most current Nursing Standard content. It covers the current year plus a rolling 3 year archive so this currently provides access from 2016-2019 and is available via the RCNi platform. This supplements the Nursing Standard access we have via our CINAHL subscription which has full-text available from 2004-2014 (with abstracts from 1984-present). If you are searching within CINAHL you won't be able to access the full-text articles from 2016-2019 within the interface itself but you can just click on the 'Check for Full Text' link and our link resolver will take you to the full-text article in RCNi via LibrarySearch.

Nursing Standard is indexed and searchable in LibrarySearch. It is also available via BrowZine so you can view it there, add to your bookshelf and set up alerts for new content! You can access the journal directly via this authenticated link to ensure you get access to our subscribed content: Nursing Standard

Mental Health & Social Inclusion

Mental Health and Social Inclusion is primarily written by practitioners for practitioners working to promote social inclusion of people with mental health conditions. 

 The journal is practical and enables readers to keep up to date with innovative approaches and best practice, as well as explore problems and possible solutions. It includes applied research, case studies, commentaries, interviews, service user points of view and regular features such as Policy Watch and Research Watch. Research articles are blind peer reviewed and other types of articles are subject to editor review, with blind peer review if appropriate.

 The journal focuses on recovery, empowerment, rehabilitation, peer support and self-management, with regular updates on:

  • Employment
  • Education/training
  • Arts/culture
  • Leisure, physical and community activities
  • Personal finances
  • International perspectives

The journal is read by NHS trusts, social service departments, universities and colleges, training providers, housing associations, voluntary sector agencies, government departments, commissioners, service users and individual subscribers.

This title is fully indexed in LibrarySearch so any articles matching topic searches will display in your results. You can easily navigate to the journal homepage by doing a title search in LibrarySearch too. Mental Health & Social Inclusion is indexed in CINAHL with abstracts from 2000-present.
