Abstract

This study explored the overall picture of nursing research in Taiwan from 1991 to 2000. Databases, including CINAHL, Medline, EBSCOhost, HINT, ProQuest, Theses information center and Taiwan National Library were used. A total of 1885 articles from 43 Taiwanese journals, 1224 papers, 41 overseas journals, 76 papers, and 585 unpublished master theses were included. A total of 603 (32.0%) papers were published in 1991-1995 and 1282 (68.0%) papers in 1996-2000. The highest percentages for each variable were as follows: articles with 2 authors (32.2%); first author to be an instructor (59.9%), hold a master’s degree (30.8%), articles dealing with nursing practice (60.8%), articles including description of purpose (99.4%), articles including a literature review (99.5%), articles including a research framework (5 1.7%), articles including a survey (62.1%); articles including content validity(67.7%), articles including Cronbach α (55.4%); articles including data collection with investigation (60.4%); articles including statistic used number (99.0%); articles including percentages (83.7%); articles including Pearson's correlation (43.8%); and articles including ANOVA (41.4%).
Research findings need to be applied in practice to improve nursing quality. Based on the findings of this study, the first recommendation is to establish a nursing research center in Taiwan to integrate and use research resources. The other recommendation is to integrate research methods, research design, and statistics into the continuous education for clinical nurses to enhance nursing research competence.
