Peer Review Policy Of "COSMIC JOURNAL OF NURSING AND HEALTH STUDIES"

Purpose

The purpose of this peer review policy is to ensure that all manuscripts submitted to the Cosmic Journal of Nursing and Health Studies (CJNHS) are subjected to rigorous and objective peer review. The goal is to publish high-quality, original research that will make a significant contribution to the nursing and health sciences literature.

Scope

This policy applies to all manuscripts submitted to CJNHS, including original research articles, review articles, case studies, and letters to the editor.

Process

All manuscripts submitted to CJNHS undergo a two-stage peer review process. In the first stage, the manuscript is reviewed by the editorial staff to ensure that it meets the journal's submission guidelines and formatting requirements. If the manuscript is deemed to be of sufficient quality, it is then sent out to two or three reviewers for blinded peer review.

Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript on the following criteria:

  • Originality and significance of the research
  • Appropriateness of the methodology
  • Clarity and conciseness of the writing
  • Soundness of the conclusions

Reviewers are also asked to provide constructive feedback to the authors that will help them to improve their manuscript.

Based on the reviewers' comments, the editor will make a decision on whether to accept, reject, or request revisions to the manuscript. The editor's decision is final.

Confidentiality

All peer reviews are confidential. Reviewers are not allowed to share their identities with the authors, and the authors are not allowed to contact the reviewers directly.

Conflict of Interest

Reviewers are required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest, such as having a financial interest in the research or having a personal relationship with the authors. If a conflict of interest is disclosed, the editor will take appropriate steps to ensure that the review is fair and objective.

Ethics

All research submitted to CJNHS must meet the highest ethical standards. Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript on the following ethical criteria:

  • Informed consent from participants
  • Protection of human subjects
  • Adherence to ethical guidelines for research involving animals

Conclusion

CJNHS is committed to publishing high-quality, original research that will make a significant contribution to the nursing and health sciences literature. The journal's rigorous peer review process helps to ensure that only the best and most innovative research is published.
