The Online Journal of Nursing Informatics (OJNI) is a free, international, professional, refereed publication that focuses on nursing informatics in all practice settings. OJNI is committed to addressing the theoretical and practical aspects of nursing informatics as it relates to the art of nursing. CINAHL indexes the journal.
We are proud that our readership spans 49 countries!
The Journal was initiated in 1996 making OJNI the longest running journal dedicated to Nursing Informatics.
PLEASE NOTE: We are currently moving the OJNI Journal issues to a new layout. So far Volumes 1, 15, 16 and 17 have been published using the new layout. Eventually, all sixteen volumes will be presented using this new format.
Beginning with the Volume 14, Issue 3 October 2010 edition, five new columns were introduced, written by our new Senior Editor team of nursing informatics experts. In 2012 and 2013 two columns were retired, and two more added.
