Before accepting to review a manuscript, reviewers should ensure that the manuscript is within their area of expertise and they can dedicate the assigned time to conduct a critical review.
Reviewers must not share information about manuscripts as it is considered confidential.

Reviewers should declare their conflicts of interest and rescue themselves from the peer review process if a conflict exists.
It is unethical for reviewers to use information obtained during the peer review process for their own or any other person's advantage.
Reviewers should be honest and objective and should not be influenced by the origin of the manuscript, religious or cultural viewpoint of the author.
Reviewers should focus on originality, quality, clarity and depth of research.

- Requires minor corrections
- Requires moderate revision
