Instructions to Reviewers > For Authors and Reviewers > Instructions to Reviewers

Child Health Nursing Research has a double-blind peer-review system to improve the quality of manuscripts. Reviewers have the professional responsibility to assist authors in improving their manuscript by giving expert advice to them in the peer-review process. Reviewers also contribute to editorial decisions. When reviewers are asked to review a manuscript, they should keep the information about the manuscript confidential. Reviewers should not use ideas expressed in the manuscript for their own research without the authors consent, and should not contact the authors personally without permission from the editor. Reviewers should review the manuscript objectively and appropriately without any bias or personal interest. If reviewers have a conflict of interest when reviewing the manuscript, they should consult with the editor. Reviewers are required to respond to the invitation to review the manuscript by the scheduled time, and to finish reviewing the manuscript in a timely manner. Reviewers should present their comments about the manuscript to the authors courteously. When reviewers suspect misconduct or ethical issues in the manuscript, they should immediately inform the editor and cooperate with the editor regarding any next steps to be taken. The resolution process will be initiated following the flowchart provided by the COPE (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts).

Regulations on Review and Publication

1. Purpose
The purpose of these Regulations is to define matters regarding the review and publication of manuscripts submitted to Child Health Nursing Research.

2. Selection of Reviewers
1) The editorial board or the board of directors can nominate potential reviewers. Reviewers should be experts in the corresponding field.
2) The editor-in-chief or associate editor selects reviewers. Reviewers should not be affiliated with the same university or medical center as the author.
3) Information about manuscripts, authors, and reviewers should be kept confidential.
4) If a reviewer cannot finish the review within 2 weeks, the editor-in-chief or associate editor can replace the reviewer.

3. Review Results
1) Manuscripts that are classified as 쏿ccepted are accepted without any changes.
2) Manuscripts that are classified as 쏿ccepted with revisions are accepted after the authors revise as suggested by the reviewers, and the editorial board validates the corrections.
3) Manuscripts that are classified as 쐒evise and resubmit can be reviewed again after the authors revise as suggested by the reviewers.
4) Manuscripts are classified as 쐒ejected when two or more reviewers recommend rejection during the review process. The editorial board will then notify the authors that the manuscript will not be published if the authors had been requested to revise the manuscript, but failed to revise without legitimate justification presented to and acknowledged by the editorial board.

4. Notification of Review Results
After all the reviewers finish reviewing the manuscript, the editor-in-chief notifies the authors of the review results within a week, and allows the authors an opportunity to either submit revisions to the manuscript or raise objections to the review.

5. Decision for Publication
If reviewers have conflicting opinions about whether to accept the manuscript or not, the editor-in-chief may make the final decision.
