Information for Reviewers
Timely reviews are of utmost importance to authors, therefore I would be grateful if you would please submit your review by its due date.
Reviewers are requested to follow these important ethical guidelines:
- The paper and your review should be treated as private. Even after publication, you must not share your review or anything about the review process with anybody without the permission of the editors and authors involved. This also applies to “comments to author” from other reviewers, which are shared with you once a choice is made (and vice versa).
- If you suspect plagiarism, fraud, or other ethical problems, please contact the editor as soon as possible and provide as much information as possible.
- Any suggestion that the author add citations to your (or your associates’) work must be made for legitimate scientific grounds, not to boost your citation count or increase the exposure of your work (or those of your associates).
