HOW TO BECOME A JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRIC NURSING REVIEWER
We need a constant stream of new peer reviewers. Please consider joining us.
All interested reviewers must meet the following requirements and should acknowledge the following responsibilities.
REQUIREMENTS FOR REVIEWERS
A reviewer must have a valid Ph.D. degree in medicine, nursing, psychiatric nursing, psychology, or psychiatry as well as a specialty diploma, or a Ph.D. in research-related areas, such as biostatistics.
A reviewer must be academically affiliated with a university or institution, or must be an educator at a research hospital with residency training.
A reviewer must have at least 1 original research publication listed on his or her CV. All articles pending a final decision must be included.
A reviewer is expected to review 1 to 5 manuscripts per calendar year.
A reviewer is invited to review a manuscript by an invitation e-mail, which includes the proposed review duration (2 or 3 weeks) and log-in information for the electronic submission system.
A reviewer has to log-in to the electronic submission system within 5 days after the date of the invitation e-mail and must inform the editorial board if they will review the manuscript or not by selecting one of the two options in the system (“I Accept” or “I Decline”). Reviewer duties are no longer valid after 5 days since we assume that you are unavailable to respond to this request.
A reviewer must complete the assigned review within the proposed review duration provided in the invitation e-mail (2 or 3 weeks, according to the type of manuscript).
There are occasions when a reviewer may be unable to complete the review within the allotted time due to unforeseen circumstances. In this event, please contact the editor immediately so that arrangements can be made for the review to be completed in a timely fashion.
If you would like to volunteer, please register using our electronic submission system. This process will automatically add your name and contact details. Please also let us know once you have registered with an e-mail to [email protected] and please fill in the Reviewer Information Form.
