The aim of this report is to present a ranking of Nursing journals covered in Google Scholar Metrics (GSM), for the 2008-2012. This is an update of previous ranking, based on the h index for journals included by GSM (Reina Leal, Repiso & Delgado López-Cózar, 2013). GSM doesn’t yet allow group and sort journals of a scientific discipline. Therefore, to the nursing discipline, can only be located 41 journals from the ten listings offered by GSM. However, in an attempt to overcome this limitation, we have used the diversity of search procedures allowed by GSM to identify the greatest number of scientific journals of Nursing with h index calculated by this bibliometric tool. Bibliographic searches were conducted between 3rd and 7th February 2014. The result is a ranking of 366 nursing journals sorted by the same h index, and mean as discriminating value. Journals are also grouped by quartiles.
