Keynote : J Intensive Crit Care Nurs


As a reviewer of nursing scientific articles, I face on a day to day challenges with it. The work involving reviewing a single article is more than a lot to start with. The assurance that the submitted article is not a plagiarism and is relevant for the field, brings a huge amount of research and reading to do. Also, making sure that authors correct uses the references, and that there are no more accurate references is a huge task for a reviewer. A step by step guide for reviewers is important to make sure that scientific knowledge is produced and relevant for the field of study.
