The journal facilitated a thoughtful, but expeditious peer-review process for the manuscript. After acceptance, we were presented with a well-constructed proof for final publication. Communication with the journal throughout the process was excellent.

University of Buea - PNNOJ


I have had an amazing experience publishing my articles in the Journal of Pediatrics and Neonatal Nursing (PNNOJ). Their peer-review process is rigorous and fast, and the staff is very friendly patient, and understanding. In addition, to the good working relationship during the peer review process, much consideration in terms of publication charge is given to authors from resource-poor settings. I strongly recommend colleagues publish their articles in PNNOJ.

Hospital Nacional de Pediatría Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan - PNNOJ

University of Alabama - PNNOJ


It has been my privilege to serve on the editorial board and as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Pediatrics and Neonatal Nursing since early 2015. This experience has been facilitated and enhanced in large part by its effective support staff and diligent efforts of my colleagues serving the editorial board. Special thanks to Kathy Flora, an editorial assistant from Openventio Publishers and her support staff. Their contributions to the flow of information and publication process have been instrumental in the development and growth of the journal and the quality of its manuscripts. As such, I look forward to a long-standing relationship.
