Our journal uses double-blind peer-review to ensure an objective evaluation of all articles submitted. Therefore, neither the authors’ identity will be disclosed to the reviewers, nor the reviewers’ identity to the authors. Reviewers’ comments, not the table linked below, will be sent to the authors, via email, by the journal’s editor.
Reviewers should respect the confidentiality of the material supplied to them and they may not use the information from the unpublished manuscripts in their own work. They should also let the editor know if they suspect the authors’ identity so that competing/conflicting interests may be avoided (mentors, mentees, close collaborative or joint grant holders).
Reviewers should criticize the paper, not the author, and should not use derogatory or libelous language. They should be fair and constructive, in a reasonable time-frame agreed upon with the journal’s editor.
Reviewers should not judge a manuscript in terms of origins, nationality, religious or political beliefs, and they should decline any manuscript which they would not be able to assess objectively due to such bias.
Reviewers should also avoid suggesting that authors include citations to their (reviewers) or any associate’s work as compulsory to publication.
Please see here the criteria you are invited to comment upon in order to evaluate our articles.
