Peer Review Panel

After an initial review by the editor, manuscripts submitted to Nursing Education Perspectives are sent to members of the Peer Review Panel for a double-blind peer review. We ask peer reviewers to evaluate the content of the manuscript with regard to various criteria:

  • Does it represent the state of the art or science of nursing
    and/or nursing education?
  • Does it present new or improved findings or ideas?
  • Is it consistent with sound educational practices and/or
    research methodology?
  • Are the references appropriate?
  • Is the use of language clear and precise?
  • Is the content interesting and organized logically?
  • Nurse educators who have published in peer-reviewed journals and other publications are welcome to apply to become part of the Nursing Education Perspectives Peer Review Panel.

Submissions are assigned to one of three Peer Review Panels depending on type of article.

  • Featured Articles/Teaching with Technology Articles: These submissions are up to 20 pages in length. Preference is given to research manuscripts.
  • Innovation Center Articles: These submissions are up to six pages in length and focus on innovative program developments.
  • Research Brief Articles. These submissions are up to six pages in length and focus on pilot studies in nursing education, studies based on a single site, and studies with small samples that would limit generalization.
