Instructions for Authors
You can download a copy of the JNHPR article template here. Please do not alter the formatting or fonts that have been provided, as they have been specifically adjusted to expedite the typesetting process. Authors may change the subheadings at their discretion for editorial and opinion type articles. Note: If you are unable to download the files, please re-try using the Firefox browser.
All manuscripts must be submitted online by one of the authors of the manuscript, and should not be submitted by anyone on their behalf. The submitting author takes full responsibility for the article during submission and peer-review.
To minimize the time taken from submission to decision to publish, please ensure that you read these submission instructions very carefully to ensure that your manuscript adheres to the JNHPR formatting guidelines.
As part of the submission process, you will be asked to provide a cover letter. Please use this to explain why your manuscript should be published in the JNHPR, elaborate on any issues relating to our editorial policies, declare any potential conflicts of interest, and state whether you or any of your co-authors intend on publishing your work, in whole or as part as a larger study, in the future. At the JNHPR, we understand that many research projects are sometimes a portion of a larger study, and publishing your work in the JNHPR does not prevent you from publishing overlapping work in another journal the future. Authors, however, may not publish their work in the JNHPR if it has already been published elsewhere, and authors should be aware that other research journals may not allow for overlapping publication.
Please submit your manuscript in Microsoft Word format only (DOC, DOCX).
