Peer Review Process

The Malaysian Journal of Nursing (MJN) is a scholarly, referred, quarterly, peer-reviewed publication. Submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the editorial board and will be accepted if they meet the MJN criteria and stand in agreement with the standards of the journal.

Reviewers deal with manuscripts blindly and discuss the remarks in editorial meetings. Reviews are then sent to the corresponding author for suggested modifications and the corrected version of the manuscript will be peer-reviewed for a second time by two or three external reviewers.

Note : The turnover time for the review process is 2-8 weeks and the minimum turnover time for publication process is 2-24 weeks.

According journal's publication policies, the submitted manuscript cannot be published in any other journal during the review process. The editorial board members have the full right to cancel or accept the manuscript for publications.
