The Journal Editorial Board welcomes original research, literature reviews, case studies, audits and research methodology manuscripts that fit with the Philosophy of the Journal.

By submitting a manuscript, authors imply that their work is original, has not been published previously in any form and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

For full details about submitting a manuscript, please see the Contributor Guidelines.

Authors are asked to complete the Author Cover Sheet and email it with their manuscript to Co-editor Lesley Dixon, practice@nzcom.org.nz. Please put in the subject line “Journal manuscript submission”.

If you wish to discuss submitting a manuscript, please contact the Co-editor by email, or phone 03 377 2732.

After submission

All manuscripts are assessed by an editor and, if deemed suitable, are sent for double-blind peer review by two external reviewers who have expertise relevant to the content. The sub-editor appointed to a manuscript collates the reviewers’ feedback and communicates with the corresponding author regarding the acceptability of publication.

If the manuscript is acceptable, the role of the sub-editor is to work with the author to improve the manuscript’s overall academic standard. This happens through a process of critique, feedback and revision. Our goal is to encourage new authors with this editorial process.
