About the Henderson Repository
The Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-Repository (Henderson Repository) is the only repository solely dedicated to sharing works created by nurses. It is an open-access digital academic and clinical scholarship service that freely collects, preserves, and disseminates full-text nursing research and evidence-based practice materials. The repository is a resource of the honor society of nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International.
All nurses are invited to submit research-related or evidence-based practice works. These works may be authored by a single nurse, multiple nurses, or a collaborative group that includes a nurse. There is no fee to submit, and authors retain copyright to their materials, maintaining control of their work via a self-archiving mechanism.
Anyone with Internet access may use the repository at no charge. A full-text search capability ensures that items stored in the repository are easily retrievable. The repository includes dissertations, theses, study reports, conference papers, committee reports, faculty-created learning objects, presentation slides, conference papers, and pre- and post-print journal articles. The repository also houses more than 38,000 study and conference abstracts.
The submission process is designed to be user-friendly and efficient. All entries to topical collections under the Independent Submissions community are peer-reviewed prior to posting (a unique feature compared to other repositories). See a complete list of communities and collections.
