If you are a member of SPN, our Editors would be happy to assist you and provide some initial feedback for your idea BEFORE (or early in the process) you begin.  This ensures that all the parts of a research study or quality improvement nursing science project (such as, problem, lit review, purpose statement, method and design, evidence of rigor, data collection, data analysis, findings/results, discussion, conclusion, and next steps) are present before you submit to JPN.
