Editorial Policy and Ethical Considerations

Rev Rene publishes manuscripts in Portuguese, English, and Spanish by researchers from the field of Nursing and related disciplines, provided that they contribute to the practice and discipline of Nursing.

Submission to Rev Rene implies that the content has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts with similarities to previously published articles, even in parts of the text, figures, or tables, will be excluded from the evaluation process at any stage.

Rev Rene adopts the continuous publication process (rolling pass).

Data citation

The veracity of the information and citations is the authors' sole responsibility.
