About the reviewing process

The JAANP uses a double blind peer-review review process (neither the reviewer nor the author ever know each other's identities). Multiple reviewers are assigned to each manuscript based on the reviewers' expertise and availability. The entire process is computerized and done by email, which helps minimize mailing expenses for the reviewers and shortens time for the review process.

A typical review will take about one-two hours depending on the type of manuscript and the reviewer's familiarity with the content. Our reviewers are expected to act as "content experts," not editors; we don't expect you to rewrite a manuscript. An online publication, Guidebook for Manuscript Reviewers, written by the editor is available free on the Nurse Author & Editor website under the For Reviewers tab. Log in is required.

Manuscripts are assigned for review according to our needs and our reviewers' areas of expertise and workload. This means that the frequency of our requests for an individual reviewer's services will be determined by the content of the articles submitted to the JAANP for publication. One or two reviews per year per reviewer is typical.

We understand that our reviewers are busy people, so we always query a reviewer by email as to their availability and interest before sending the link to the actual article for review. We ask that reviews be accomplished within 30 days; however, we can extend that time when necessary. Reminder emails are automatically sent out at specific intervals during the review process.
