Greetings, All. I’m hoping I can help with what seems to have become something of a mystery. The publication, Communicating Nursing Research (ISSN 0160-1652), has been published continuously since 1968. This publication is the product of the Western Institute of Nursing (and prior to 1985, the organization was known as the Western Council on Higher Education for Nursing). Until 1996, WIN was a structural unit of WICHE. In June 1996, WIN moved to Portland, OR. WIN is an incorporated nonprofit organization and is physically housed at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), although it is not an entity of OHSU. We published Volume 30 in April 1997 after WIN moved to Portland, and just published Volume 43 in 2010.

So, I am confirming, definitively, that the Western Institute of Nursing is the publisher of Communicating Nursing Research, and it is most definitely continuing to be published. We offered only a DVD in 2009, but have both a DVD and a hard copy of the publication available for 2010. I will clarify with Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory that we are not “ceased” (or deceased for that matter)!! Although, we’ve done business with CINAHL for a number of years, I will contact them to let them know that WIN should be listed as the publisher.
Incidentally, SWETS and EBSCO order the publication from us, but I don’t believe we’ve had any contact with WT COX.

Liane, I appreciate your guidance on this issue. Please let me know if I should do anything else to get this straightened out. Cordially, Paula

Cheryl, Laura, and Hillary -

Hello again. I just want to confirm, in writing, the publication history and status of Communicating Nursing Research (ISSN 0160-1652).

The problem is that the title is listed in some publications (such as the core resource Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory) as ceased. Furthermore, some serials vendors who work with libraries are reporting the title as ceased. Also, in databases like CINAHL, the publisher is listed as WICHE, and WIN is not listed at all.

I know from confirming with WIN that the title is still published on CD-ROM. Vol 43 (Spring 2010) is indexed in the CINAHL database. So researchers are able to find citations to the journal.

I know from confirming with WICHE, they have had or may currently have something to do with the publication, but that is unclear.

Hopefully, folks from WIN and WICHE can help we serials librarians figure out definitively who the publisher is and confirm, in writing, the status of the publication.

It would be good if whoever the publisher is sent an update to major serials vendors (SWETS, WT COX, EBSCO) so they are aware of the status of the publication. I do think EBSCO has it correct, but I am not certain of the others. A notice should also be sent to Ulrich’s. The best way to contact them is to send an email to<>.

Hello, everyone.  Our vendor has told us this title has ceased, but the
OCLC record and publisher's website do not indicate this.  Anyone know
for sure?

Thank you.
