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

Editors should strive to improve the quality of Child Health Nursing Research. Editors should provide guidelines about research and publication ethics to researchers and information about the submission process and the review system to authors and reviewers. Editors should strive to maintain a fair and blind peer-review system by choosing suitable reviewers in their area of research expertise to review manuscripts. In order to ensure that the peer-review system is effective, editors should develop and update a database of reviewers. The editor-in-chief should identify eligible editorial board members, and provide them with information about Child Health Nursing Research. The editor-in-chief should discuss the publication of Child Health Nursing Research with editorial board members regularly. Editors should keep information about manuscripts, authors, and reviewers confidential. Editors should not use ideas expressed in the manuscript for the editor셲 research without the authors consent. Editors should evaluate manuscripts objectively and appropriately without any bias or personal interest. Editors are required to be alert to misconduct or ethical issues in manuscripts, and to follow the standards of research and publication ethics. When an editor finds a fundamental error in a published manuscript, he or she should immediately initiate the process of resolution, including an expression of concern, correction, and/or withdrawal of the manuscript, as required. The resolution process will be initiated following the flowchart provided by the COPE (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts).
