Our Academic Culture
Peer review is fundamental to the scientific publication process and the dissemination of knowledge and information. Peer reviewers should be experts in the specific topic addressed in the articles they review, and should be selected for their objectivity and scientific knowledge. All reviewers should be informed of the publication’s expectations. Reviews will be expected to be professional, honest, courteous, prompt, and constructive. The editors may routinely assess all reviews for quality; they may also edit reviews before sending them to authors. The submitted manuscript is a privileged communication; reviewers must treat it as confidential. It should not be retained or copied. Also, reviewers must not share the manuscript with any colleagues without the explicit permission of the editor.
