JAANP peer reviewers are uncompensated volunteers who are interested in the advancement of the NP role and health science via high-quality, informative publications. Reviewers act as content experts, not editors, meaning rewriting a manuscript is not required or expected.
Beginning in 2018, reviewers are recognized each year in the journal as a show of appreciation for their dedication and hard work.
We know that peer reviewing requires significant time and expertise, and we appreciate your commitment to making JAANP the premier journal for your profession. In gratitude, JAANP offers CE credit is a way of acknowledging your dedication and hard work.
To earn CE credit, you will need to respond to all four questions at the end of your online peer review form:
The JAANP editorial team will evaluate your review and assign a score between zero and 100 to reflect the quality of the review. A score of 70 or above is needed to earn CE credit. Please note that this evaluation of your review is independent of the quality of the article. Even if you recommend against publishing the article, credit can be awarded if the quality of your review scores a 70 or above.
JAANP uses a double-blind peer review process to ensure that neither reviewers nor authors ever know each other's identities. In addition, multiple reviewers are assigned to each manuscript based on the reviewers’ expertise and availability. Manuscripts are assigned for review based on the content and volume of the articles submitted to JAANP. Typically, each reviewer will be assigned one or two peer reviews per year.
The entire peer review process is completed digitally via email, which helps minimize mailing expenses for reviewers and reduces the time commitment. Reviewers are queried by email as to their availability and interest before JAANP assigns the article for review. A typical peer review will take about one to two hours depending on the type of manuscript and the reviewer's familiarity with the content.
Reviewers are asked to complete their peer reviews within 30 days; however, JAANP can provide an extension, if necessary. To assist you in planning your reviews, reminder emails are automatically sent out at specific intervals during the review process.
As a valuable member benefit, AANP members receive a free online subscription to JAANP. Non-member and institutional subscriptions to JAANP are also available.
