  • pISSN: 2287-9110, eISSN: 2287-9129

2. Name of journal

The official journal title is Child Health Nursing Research. The abbreviated title is Child Health Nurs Res.

3. Peer review process

https://www.e-chnr.org/authors/authors.php#3
Child Health Nursing Research reviews all manuscripts received through a peer review system (http://www.chnr-submission.org/). A manuscript is first reviewed for its format and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal. If the manuscript meets these two criteria, it is dispatched to three investigators in the field with relevant knowledge. Once a manuscript is sent to the reviewers, Child Health Nursing Research waits to receive opinions from all reviewers. The authors names and affiliations are removed during peer review (double-blind peer review). The editor-in-chief of Child Health Nursing Research makes the final decision regarding each manuscript셲 publication based on the reviewers critiques and recommendations, as well as the scientific merits of the manuscript. An initial decision is normally made within 4 weeks of receipt of a manuscript, and the reviewers comments are sent to the corresponding author by e-mail. The corresponding author must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the reviewers comments item by item. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within 4 weeks of the editorial decision is regarded as withdrawal. If a further revision period is required, the author should contact the editorial office through the inquiry form available at: https://www.e-chnr.org/about/contact.php. The editor informs the corresponding author of the final decision on acceptance or rejection for publication. After the final 쁝ccept decision, an editorial and statistical review and similarity check precede publication. All manuscripts from editors, employees, or members of the editorial board are processed in the same way as other unsolicited manuscripts. During the review process, submitters do not engage in the decision process. Editors do not handle their own manuscripts, even if they are commissioned. We guarantee neither acceptance without review nor very short peer review times for unsolicited manuscripts. Commissioned manuscripts also reviewed before publication.
