International Nursing Research Conference 2017
20-22 October 2017
Culture, Co-Creation, and Collaboration for Global Health


Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts to apply for the outstanding nursing research award or to present at the INRC2017 conference, or both. The winner of the award may be invited to extend their work for submission to The Pacific Rim International Journal of Nursing Research. Every work presented at the conference, either oral or poster, will be included in the conference proceedings. Abstracts are accepted only by electronic submission.

Submission category and review process:

Outstanding Nursing Research Awards will be evaluated in two phases. The concept of the work is evaluated in the first phase, where authors submit a 300-word abstract. Authors whose abstract is accepted will be asked to submit a full paper of 4000-6000 words and to present their research in a poster format at the conference. Evaluation of this second phase will be based on both the quality of the full paper and the effectiveness of the poster presentation.

Conference Presentation is divided into two formats: oral or poster. Authors will submit a 300-word abstract along with their presentation format of choice. A blind peer-review process will be used to evaluate all submitted abstracts.

Conference proceedings and publication:

Accepted abstracts, including award candidates passing the first phase of evaluation, will be included in the conference proceedings if and only if the authors register and present their research work at the conference.
