Duties of reviewers

  • Duties of reviewers
  • ▪ Contribution to Editorial Decision: The peer review process assists the editor in making editorial decisions and, through editorial communications with the author, may also assist the author in improving the paper.
  • ▪ Promptness: Submitted manuscripts are evaluated for their intellectual content without regard to the race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.
  • ▪ Confidentiality: Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or who knows that a prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself or herself from the review process.
  • ▪ Objectivity: Reviews should be conducted objectively. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
  • ▪ Acknowledgement of Source: Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. Reviewers should also notify the editor of any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.
  • ▪ Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
