Turning your assignment into an article for British Journal of Nursing

Volume 29 · Issue 3

Writing for academic journals can be highly competitive. Your assignment or essay that has been considered publishable may well be of interest to British Journal of Nursing (BJN). Writing for BJN is different to writing as part of a course, where you would have been required to demonstrate to the marker that you had met all of the learning outcomes. For BJN you need to be able to sum your work up in such a way that it captures the interest of our readers.

This discussion presents a practical approach, a guide to converting a piece of work written as a course requirement—an assignment—into a clinical article that may be suitable for publication in BJN. The journal does not publish assignments, we publish articles, but with some work your assignment could become an article. Working with and helping new writers arrive at publication provides great satisfaction for the team (and we hope you also).
