OBJECTIVES To analyze the characteristics of the nursing research reports published. To analyze trends and priorities in Mexican nursing research. MATERIALS 461 articles published in four Mexican nursing journals from January 2000 to July 2002, from which 150 were research reports. METHODS A general classification and comparison of research reports and other kinds of articles was carried out. They were classified by year, journal, type of research, methodologies, author’s academic degree and country of origin. A matrix analysis, according to Hinshaw’s perspective about international nursing research priorities (2000), in comparison to the Mexican circumstances, was carried out. Impact over clinical, communitarian, teaching or administrative settings was identified. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS. There was a slight decease of published reports from 2000 to 2001, but an increase in 2002. Studies made through quantitative methodologies prevailed. Research articles have been published manly by master degree nurses, bachelor degree nurses or nurses holding a master degree in other areas. Within the research trends, research articles related to health promotion and risk reduction stand out, as well as those for patient’s perspective, health and illness self management , followed by the ones related to attention systems. About priorities, successfully published research articles, associated to care practices, reach the two third parts of the total, leaving a third part to nursing education, which shows how it has turned over nursing research, in only a decade; opposite to the circumstances of the 90’s. The larger impacted setting is the clinical one (76%), following by teaching, management, and finally communitarian. IMPLICATIONS. It’s clear that Mexican nursing has built different paths that give opportunities for disciplinary knowledge development. However, we should increase them to promote the change of paradigms underlying nursing research, in order to enhance care practices, and also to trace health policy development that largely benefit our population.
