Background: Reference lists serve as a resource for the author's ideas. Inaccurate references hinder retrieval of documents, may prevent researchers from examining all of the work by an author and may result in authors not getting credit for their work. The aim of this study was to determine the number and types of errors in nursing research journal reference lists.
