NUR 440 Peer Review Guidelines and Rubric Overview: The purpose of peer review is to facilitate quality-nursing care through best practice discovered in evidence-based research. According to the American Nurses Association, “peer review in nursing is the process by which practicing registered nurses systematically access, monitor, and make judgments about the quality of nursing care provided by peers as measured against professional standards of practice. Peer review implies that the nursing care delivered by a group of nurses or an individual nurse is evaluated by individuals of the same rank or standing according to established standards of practice.” Peer review helps not only the author but the reviewer as well through the development of a critical eye which can then be applied to their own work. Prompt As the reviewer: When you peer review another’s work, you will critically evaluate and suggest improvements. You will likely read the abstract once or twice before delving in with comments and first impressions. Using the checklist below, identify strengths and areas for improvement, being sure to address each critical element in your review. Peer Review Checklist:

Aims and objectives: Is the purpose clearly stated? Background: Does the author offer background on the subject? Methods: Are the methods clearly stated? What type of method did the author use? Results: Are the results valid and reliable? Conclusions: Are the conclusions clearly stated and are they informed by the results? Relevance to clinical practice: Does the author state the relevancy to clinical practice? Articulation of response (e.g., citations, grammar, spelling, syntax, organization)

You will be evaluated on your peer reviews, not the abstract submitted, using the rubric below. As the author of the abstract, remember the following:

Read the review carefully, avoiding any desire to defend your choices. If you are unclear what the reviewer means, ask them to clarify. If you have any questions, feel free to pose them to the reviewer. Take special note of repeated commentary (e.g., grammar, citation, etc.) as this may signify an area for improvement. Thank the reviewers for their feedback. If some commentary was especially helpful, this is useful information for the reviewer. Accept that negative feedback comes with the territory. Your job is not to make everyone happy but to make your work the best that it can be.
