    • I registered at www.degruyter.com/page/flavor , as instructed below, and this journal is not among those with free access. Quite disappointing to go through the whole process of registering then find the one journal that interested me was not available.

    • We apologize for the inconvenience. We have already tried to find out why you are not able to access the content - but so far everything seems to be ok with the journal. Have you already activated the access token FLAVOR after the registration? Could you please send us the error message? Thank you for your understanding and your patience!

    • I would like to submit a manuscript. I read that you would be accepting manuscripts June 1st, but I don't see a link that allows me to do this.

    • To whom it may concern I wish to submit a manuscript for publication to the International Journal of Nursing Education but I cannot find the online submission area on the website. Please advise Thank you

    • The instructions to authors are incorrect and confusing. APA 6th does NOT require 1.5" margins. It specifies at least 1". Also, the instructions for adding extra spaces and extra double spaces are impossible to decipher.

    • Why is there only one choice "Research" when one tries to submit a paper to the IJNES?
