Last November, 16th took place the VI Nursing Journal’s Editors Meeting, where best practice regarding qualitative articles publication was discussed. Some ideas about why there is a lower proportion of qualitative research publications emerged. Things like the lack of academic training or the methodological deficiencies were pointed out as possible explications. It was precisely the last one, to ensure faithful compliance with the methodology and to apply it rigorously was the main advice to consider for success in qualitative research publishing. Besides, trying to analyse information going beyond the words is a key task. Only this way it is possible to achieve the real essence of the phenomenon, what is, in the end, the main objective of any qualitative research.
