Manuscripts rejected at this stage are not sufficiently original, have serious scientific defects, have poor grammar or English, or fall outside the purpose and scope of the journal.

The Journal of Applied Nursing and Health (JANH), uses a “double-blind” peer review model, in which the reviewer remains anonymous to the author during and after the peer review process, while the identity of the author is also unknown to the reviewer.

Reviewer Selection

Reviewer Report

Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

  • Original
  • Clear methodology
  • Have results that are clearly presented and support conclusions
  • Follow appropriate ethical guidelines, especially with regard to plagiarism
  • Up-to-date and clear science adds to knowledge and field development

Language corrections are not part of the peer-review process, but referents are encouraged to suggest corrections to the language and style of the manuscript. In the final round, the Handling Editor will examine linguistic and stylistic correctness issues and can suggest or apply corrections at this point. In rare cases, the manuscript may be returned to the author for a full linguistic and stylistic revision.

How long does the review process take?

The time required for the review process depends on the reviewer's response, no later than 3 weeks after the manuscript is submitted or after the pre-reviewer. For the Journal of Applied Nursing and Health (JANH), the typical time for the first round of the peer review process is approximately 3 weeks, a maximum of three months. If reviewer reports conflict with each other or reports need not be delayed, further expert opinion may be sought. In the rare case where it is extremely difficult to find a second reviewer to review a manuscript, while the existing reviewer's report has convinced the handling Editor, the decision to accept, reject or request the author for revisions may be made, at the discretion of the handling Editor, on the basis of only one report. reviewers. The Editor's decision on handling will be sent to the author with the reviewer's recommendation, usually including a final word-for-word comment. As a rule, revised manuscripts are sent to the initial reviewer for review who can then request further revisions.
