Become a peer reviewer for ​Nursing2019


Nursing2019 seeks qualified nurses and other health professionals willing to review and critically evaluate manuscripts to evaluate their suitability for publication, relevance to readers, and consistency with evidence-based practice. We are seeking reviewers in all fields and research. 

Peer reviewers are asked to review three or four manuscripts per year. Invitations to review a manuscript are sent via e-mail, and reviews are submitted via the manuscript management portal, Editorial Manager. The invitation to review e-mail provides an abstract, a direct link to access the manuscript, and additional instructions. Reviewers have the option of declining to review a manuscript if they feel the topic is unsuitable or circumstances at the time make completing the review impossible. If a reviewer does not acknowledge interest or decline a review (using the weblink provided within the invitation to review) within 7 days, the reviewer is automatically uninvited. Peer reviewers are not paid but can receive CE credit and are able to list their service on their CV. 

Each peer review is evaluated for quality and thoroughness by an editor and is then scored. High quality reviews earn qualified peer reviewers continuing education credits. Our publisher is accredited to provide continuing education credits to NPs, nurses, and physicians. During the peer review, reviewers are asked several questions, including if they would like to receive continuing education credits. After a high-quality review is completed, a certificate of continuing education is mailed to the address provided by the peer reviewer within Editorial Manager. 

If you would like to join our peer reviewer panel, or you have questions before deciding, please e-mail Andrei Greska at Volunteer reviewers should list their areas of expertise, so we know which types of manuscripts to send, and should also attach a current CV to the e-mail.
