About the Henderson Repository
Our Mission - Providing research related and evidence-based practice works to help nurses advance patient care and the nursing profession.
The Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-Repository is a free, open-access alternative publishing venue committed to providing knowledge resources to help advance nurses and patient care. The repository is dedicated to bringing the latest research on nursing knowledge important to all nurses – clinicians, researchers, educators and students.
Through the Henderson Repository, individuals will have access to a full-text search of research-related and evidence-based practice submissions such as study abstracts, conference abstracts, dissertations, pre-print/post-print articles, reports, presentation papers/slides, and more. The repository operates within a dynamic environment making it easy for nurses to submit and search up-to-date research-based works. It features a streamlined submission process and all entries submitted to the topical research collections under the Independent Submissions community are peer-reviewed prior to their posting.
(See a complete list of communities and collections.)
