More New Online Journals

Two additional journals have come online from Sage Publications:

Journal of Intensive Care Medicine offers medical and surgical clinicians in adult and pediatric intensive care access to state-of-the-art, broad-based analytic reviews and updates, original articles, reports of large clinical series, techniques and procedures, topic-specific electronic resources, book reviews, and editorials on all aspects of intensive/critical/ coronary care. The journal also discusses the essential principles, protocols, clinical presentations, guidelines, indications, contraindications, complications, necessary equipment, priorities, ethical and legal issues, changes, and recommendations for ongoing care for every aspect of ICU patient care.

For over 20 years, the Journal of Holistic Nursing has been a pioneering force in integrating holistic health concepts with traditional Western medicine. The peer-reviewed journal promotes holism—a state of harmony among body, mind, emotions, and spirit —and nursing’s function within that ever-changing environment. This objective forum allows caring and innovative nurses in clinical practice, research, individual wellness practice, and academia to exchange critical information, share clinical and personal experiences, and communicate research pertaining to nursing practice, health care, wellness, healing, and human potential. Each issue contains Applied Concepts of Holistic Nursing and Continuing Education Opportunities that can lead to CE credits. The journal also occasionally offers special issues devoted to specific subjects such as: Adolescent Health, Positive Aging, and Holistic Nursing Theory.

These are among thousands of online journals available through the Health Sciences Library's A-to-Z list. Find A-to-Z on the library intranet page, in the upper right corner section titled "Find Full Text Resources." There's also a link on the library wiki, on the eResources page.
