ii. Aims and Scope

The Journal of Korean Academy of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing (JKPMHN) disseminates original, peer-reviewed research that is of interest to psychiatric and mental health care nurses. The field is considered from the broadest perspective, including theory, practice and research applications related to all ages, special populations, settings, and interdisciplinary collaborations. Through critical studies, expositions, and reviews of practice, JKPMHN is a medium for clinical scholars to provide theoretical linkages among diverse areas of practice.

The Journal of Korean Academy of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing is focused on innovations in practice that are based on development, evaluation and research. The journal is essentially a means of communication between professionals that are, mainly in nursing but it also attracts other mental health care workers. It acts as a repository of ideas, experiences and findings from evaluation or research. It also provides a forum for debate on current mental health care issues. Topics covered include psychiatric and mental health, community mental health, mental disorder, psychiatric and mental nursing education, practice, research, psychosocial nursing intervention, complementary and alternative therapies, and cultural issues.

iii. Readership

This journal is primarily published for Korean Academy of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing members, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, and mental health professionals (social workers, etc).

iv. Authorship criteria

Authorship credit should be based on 1) substantial contributions to the conception and design, acquisition of data, and/or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; 3) final approval of the version to be published; and 4) agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in terms of ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved. Every author should meet all four of these conditions. After the initial submission of a manuscript, any changes whatsoever in authorship (adding author(s), deleting author(s), or re-arranging the order of authors) must be explained by a letter to the editor from the authors concerned; this letter must be signed by all authors of the paper. Copyright assignment must also be completed by every author.

Corresponding author and first author: The JKPMHN does not allow multiple corresponding authors for one article. For each article, only one author should correspond with the editorial office and readers. The JKPMHN does accept a notice of equal contribution for the first author when the study was clearly performed by co-first authors.

Correction of authorship after publication: The JKPMHN does not correct authorship after publication unless a mistake has been made by the editorial staff. Authorship may be changed after submission but before publication when an authorship correction is requested by all of the authors involved with the manuscript.

v. Duplicate submission and redundant publication

Submitted manuscripts must not have been previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. No part of the accepted manuscript should be duplicated in any other journals. Upon notice of a duplicate submission, submission privileges to the JKPMHN will be suspended for two years.

  • 1) The manuscript has never been published in an academic journal in any other languages, electronically or otherwise.
  • 2) The author can have his/her manuscripts which have been published in this academic journal be duplicated in other languages only with the approval of the editing (or, publishing) committee chiefs of both academic journals.
  • 3) Whether or not a duplicated thesis is published shall be decided by the editing committee, which will review the contents of manuscripts.

2. Name of Journal

The official journal title is the Journal of Korean Academy of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. The abbreviated title is J Korean Acad Psychiatr Ment Health Nurs.

3. Double-blind Peer Review Process

The JKPMHN uses a double-blind peer-review system to improve the quality of manuscripts.(http://acoms.kisti.re.kr/journal/intro.do?page=logo&journalSeq=J000088).

A manuscript is first reviewed for its format and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal. If the manuscript meets these two criteria, it is dispatched to three investigators in the field with relevant knowledge. Prior to review, all submitted manuscripts are inspected by Similarity Check powered by iThenticate (https://www.crossref.org/services/similarity-check/), a plagiarism screening tool. After the manuscript has been sent to reviewers, the JKPMHN waits to receive opinions from all reviewers. The authors’ names and affiliations are removed during peer review (double-blind peer review). The editor-in-chief of the JKPMHN makes the final decision regarding each manuscript’s publication based on the reviewers’ critiques and recommendations, as well as the scientific merits of the manuscript. The acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the quality and originality of the research as well as the scientific significance. Acceptance of the manuscript is decided based on the critiques and recommended decision of the reviewers. An initial decision is normally made within two weeks of receipt of a manuscript, and the reviewers’ comments are sent to the corresponding author by e-mail. The corresponding author must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the reviewers’ comments item by item. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within two weeks of the editorial decision is regarded as withdrawal. If a further revision period is required, the author should contact the editorial office.

A final decision on acceptance/rejection for publication is forwarded to the corresponding author from the editor. All manuscripts from editors, employees, or members of the editorial board are processed in the same way as other unsolicited manuscripts. During the review process, the submitters do not engage in the decision process. Editors do not handle their own manuscripts although they are commissioned ones. We neither guarantee acceptance without review nor very short peer review times for unsolicited manuscripts. Commissioned manuscripts are also reviewed before publication.
