Primary and Secondary Sources: Guidelines for Authors

Collapse Box


Scholarly writing requires careful, accurate, and transparent use of source material, whether journal articles, books, Web content, personal communications, or other resources. While AJN encourages authors to include their own opinions and experiences in manuscripts, accurate sourcing is required for facts, quotations, theories, and research. In all cases, it is important to use primary sources whenever possible.
