Brief history

Rev Rene is edited by the Federal University of Ceará, under the responsibility of the Nursing Department and the Graduate Nursing Program. The journal has its origin in the Rede de Enfermagem do Nordeste (RENE).

The first volume of the journal was released in 2000 and was published every six months until 2004. At this stage, manuscripts produced by authors from the Northeast region predominated. In 2005, a four-monthly basis was established, achieving the first indexes in international databases. Soon after, the content became available in an open format by electronic means. In 2012, Rev Rene adopted the OJS system with the edition of five annual issues. Its print version (ISSN 1517-3852) was discontinued that year. In 2013, the journal became bimonthly and bilingual.

In 2018, a continuous publication process (rolling pass) was adopted, and the journal has become part of the Portal of Periodicals of the Federal University of Ceará. In 2019, the jornal was renamed from the title Revista da Rede de Enfermagem do Nordeste to Rev Rene. The journal is indexed in national and international databases and is affiliated with the Brazilian Association of Scientific Editors (in Portuguese, ABEC).

Rev Rene is moving towards Open Science. Since 2021, the journal has disclosed the names of the editors responsible for the manuscripts.
