Patient Experience Journal is always looking for reviewers to support the process of presenting the leading edge thinking and research on healthcare topics related to and supportive of improving the patient experience. As a journal driven by the involvement and contributions of the global patient experience community, those submitting and those reviewing play equally important roles.

The charge of reviewers is to evaluate the quality, relevance, and merit of submitted papers. Comments should be as complete and detailed as possible and contain clear opinions about strengths, weaknesses, relevance, and importance to the field. Reviewers should consider themselves as mentors to the author(s) and comments should be specific and constructive and suggestions should be intended to enhance the manuscript.

To ensure that the manuscripts published meet the highest standards, each manuscript under consideration is sent to at least two qualified reviewers with expertise in the subject. Reviewers assess the article on criteria such as significance to the field, quality of research, and quality of writing, and then make one of three recommendations: accept the article, return it to the author(s) for revision, or reject. Generally, reviewers are asked to consider no more than two or three articles per year.

Reviewers are sought on a range of topics relevant to the patient experience including service quality and excellence, clinical quality and safety, healthcare policy, healthcare administration and leadership, and including clinical and non-clinical expertise, organization development and change understanding, patient and family perspective, measurement and metrics experience and engagement in the range of interventions and practices relevant to patient experience improvement.
