Manuscripts should be submitted electronically via the journal’s SageTrack website, http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ppnp. (First-time visitors to this site will need to register first; the site includes instructions for registering).
The submitting author will be asked to provide the manuscript name, the names and contact information of each co-author (if applicable), along with an abstract of no more than 150 words and three to six descriptive key words.
Submissions should include:
- A title page, including the full article title; an abbreviated form of the title for a running head; the name and credentials (including academic degrees, licensure and certification if applicable) of each author; the number of pages, illustrations, and tables in the manuscript; and a brief (no more than three sentences) biographical description of each author, including institutional affiliation and title.
- A document of not more than 20 pages containing the text of the article. This document should omit the name and any other identifying information of any of the authors. The approximate placement of each table and figure should be noted in the text. However, tables and figures should be included in a separate document (or documents), not in the text.
The author will asked to identify any sources of funding for the article, to declare any conflict of interests, and to confirm that the manuscript is not published, in press, or under consideration elsewhere.
All submitted manuscripts are evaluated by at least two reviewers. Reviewers judge manuscripts for their readability, relevance, originality, accuracy, and clarity. The editors seek to complete the initial peer review of each manuscript and notify the author of a decision within two months of submission.
Accepted manuscripts will be edited for clarity, length, and adherence to Policy, Politics, & Nursing Practice style. The author will receive an edited copy of the manuscript to review for accuracy prior to publication.
Note for authors whose primary language is other than English:
Authors who would like to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider using the services of a professional English-language editing company. We highlight some of these companies at http://www.sagepub.com/journalgateway/engLang.htm.
Please be aware that SAGE has no affiliation with these companies and makes no endorsement of them. An author's use of these services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and the particular company, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.
