PEER REVIEW REVIEWERS' RESPONSABILITY
The Peer Reviewer is responsible for critically reading and evaluating a manuscript in his/her specialty field, and then providing objective, respectful, constructive, and honest feedback to Authors about their submission. It is appropriate for the Peer Reviewer to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the article, ways to improve the strength and quality of the work, and evaluate the relevance and originality of the manuscript.
maintain the confidentiality of the review process;
immediately alert the Managing Editor of any real or potential competing interest that could affect the impartiality of their reviewing and decline to review where appropriate;
conduct themselves fairly and impartially
point out relevant published work which has not been cited by the Author(s).
We are aware, of course, that academics will come from a particular school of thought and/or may have strong ties to a particular interest. All we ask is that reviewers strive to act fairly. If in doubt about whether a conflict exists, a reviewer should be transparent and seek the views of the journal Editor in Chief.
