What is e-Version FirstTM

e-Version First is a feature offered through our journal platform. It allows PDF versions of manuscripts that have been peer reviewed and accepted to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final printed journal. Readers can freely access or cite the article. We aim to publish accepted manuscripts in e-Version First two weeks after the final draft has been completed.


Paper Selection and Publication Process

a) Upon receipt of a manuscript submission, the Editor sends an E-mail of confirmation to the corresponding author within 1-3 working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission/e-mail may not have been successful and you should contact the Editor.

b) Peer review. We use a double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers’ and authors' identities remain anonymous. The paper will be peer-reviewed by three experts; two external reviewers and one editor from the journal are typically involved in reviewing a submission. The review process normally takes four to ten weeks, but may take longer if reviewers are unavailable.

c) Notification of the result of review by E-mail.

d) If the paper is accepted, the authors revise paper and pay the Article Processing Charge (300.00 USD).

e) The E-journal in PDF format  is available on the journal’s webpage, free of charge for download.


The publisher and journal have a policy of “Zero Tolerance on Plagiarism”.   All authors must submit original work and reference all material taken from the work of other authors.  Direct quotes from other sources are discouraged, but if they must be used the fact that they are quotes must be indicated by using inverted commas at either side of the quoted material and adding the original authors’ names, year of publication and page number for that material. 

Authors should be aware that we check all manuscripts for plagiarism through two methods: reviewer check and application of a plagiarism detection  tool (

All submissions will be checked by iThenticate before being sent to reviewers.




Acknowledgements to our reviewers

We would like to express our gratitude to all ERB members of Journal of Nursing Education and Practice and those who have made great contributions for the journal for their excellent work and the professional spirit. Without the knowledge, skill and dedication of reviewers, JNEP will not achieve the level today. The journal thanks all reviewers and wishes them Happy New Year. We expect the new collaboration and common progress with all reviewers in 2023.
