Online journals are one of the tools useful to nurses in providing patients with evidence-based nursing care. Available 24 hours a day and capable of including manuscripts of nearly unlimited size, these journals expedite dissemination of information to readers by both their electronic format and the changes that can be made to shorten the publication process. They are, however, subject to the same requirements for critique applicable to print journals, requirements that are essential in evaluation of evidence for practice.
