JPN is a not-for-profit peer-reviewed journal published by the Australian College of Perioperative Nurses (ACORN). It aims to be a trusted source of knowledge for perioperative nurses so they can provide patients with safe, effective evidence-based care.
The journal is diamond open-access which means articles are freely available to readers, and there is no submission or processing charge for authors. Published articles are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0).
