If you have questions about the journal's double-blind peer review process, please view the following webinar: Expectations of the Peer Review Process.​

Become a Peer Reviewer for Nursing Management!

Nursing Management seeks qualified nurse leaders from diverse backgrounds and clinical experiences willing to review and critically evaluate manuscripts for their suitability for publication, relevance to readers, and consistency with evidence-based practice. If you would like to join our peer reviewer panel, or you have questions before deciding, please email [email protected] Volunteers should attach a current CV or resume and list their areas of expertise so we know which types of manuscripts to send.

Peer reviewers are asked to review 3 or more manuscripts per year. Invitations to review a manuscript are sent via the manuscript management portal Editorial Manager. The invitation to review provides a brief abstract, a direct link to access the manuscript, and additional instructions. Reviewers have the option to decline 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 using the link provided within 7 days, the reviewer is automatically uninvited. 

Reviews should NOT involve a copyedit of the manuscript, but rather a brief assessment of whether the manuscript is suitable for publication in this journal. High-quality reviews earn qualified peer reviewers continuing education credits. Peer reviewers may also list their experience on their CV or resume.

For a full training module on becoming a great peer reviewer, we recommend Wolters Kluwer's Peer Reviewer Training Course.
