General nursing research journals include "Advances in Nursing Science," "Applied Nursing Research," the "International Journal of Nursing," and "Practice Nursing," according to LPNtoBSNonline.org. For specialized fields of practice, Medscape lists several publications, such as "Cancer Nursing," the "Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing," "Pediatric Nursing" and "Urologic Nursing."
Both academic and medical libraries routinely carry a range of nursing journals. For example, the University of Kansas library provides access to more than 380 electronic nursing journals as of 2015. MEDLINE, the database of medical research maintained by the National Institutes of Health's U.S. National Library of Medicine, is another useful resource.
