NIB is dedicated to fostering a deeper understanding of bioethical issues by engaging rich descriptions of complex human experiences. While NIB upholds appropriate standards for narrative inquiry and qualitative research, it seeks to publish articles that will appeal to a broad readership of health care providers and researchers, bioethicists, sociologists, policy makers, and others.

Peer Review Policy

Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics (NIB) welcomes original qualitative research articles and case studies in bioethics. Articles should be submitted through the NIB website on the guidelines for authors page https://nibjournal.org/submit/guidelines/. Titles, abstracts, and all other published text must be written in English and submitted exclusively to NIB during the review period.

Qualitative research articles and case studies submitted to NIB are subjected to double-blind peer review by expert peer reviewers. Every research article receives a preliminary review by the co-editor in chief, James M. DuBois, DSc, Ph.D. and the associate editor for research articles, Emily Anderson, Ph.D., MPH. Case studies receive a preliminary review by the co-editor in chief, Ana Iltis, Ph.D., and associate editor for case study articles, Felicia Cohn, Ph.D. The editors assess the paper for appropriateness of topic, originality, and scholarly contribution; then decide whether to send the submission to peer review. On occasion, if an article shows great potential but is not yet suitable for outside peer review, the editors will provide preliminary feedback and ask the authors to revise their submission before deciding whether to send the article to peer review.

Our editorial board and list of peer reviewers include leading qualitative researchers. Reviewers are provided with a reviewer form, which serves to guide their critique by assessing relevant quality standards.

Within four weeks of being submitted articles are rejected or sent to peer review. When articles are sent to peer review, authors receive feedback from at least two peer reviewers and the editorial office, typically within eight weeks. All submissions sent to peer review receive useful feedback that will improve articles. Authors that are invited to revise and resubmit their articles based on reviewer and editorial feedback are given 90 days to do so. Revisions are reviewed by the editors who then render a final decision within four weeks. Articles that require major revisions may be sent back to the original peer reviewers for a second review.

Stories and commentary articles published within NIB’s Narrative Symposium section are invited and not subject to peer review.
