The method was a review of 97 nursing research papers on diabetes published between 1981 and 2000. Analysis included year of publication, academic theses or not, research design, key words and the results. The results of the analysis can be summarized as follows : The number of the nursing research papers on diabetes has been increasing. Of those paper analyzed, it was found that 64 (65.97%) were master's theses, and 58 (59.79%) were descriptive or correlational studies. The most frequent key word was client behavior. Client behavior as the dependent variable was reported to be influenced by various causal variables but the results were not consistent.
