For Reviewers

Reviewers are usually invited by the editorial office. Also, reviewers are welcome to contact the editorial office if they want to contribute in reviewing Journal’s submissions in accordance to their expertise.

When a reviewer is invited to review a manuscript, she/he should make a notice for accepting/ declining the invitation. When the invitation is accepted, the reviewer should download the manuscript file and other supplementary files, entering the e-submission system.  

Reviewers should provide a summarized assessment of the whole manuscript, as well as to provide specific comments for each section of the manuscript.

Reviewers’ assessments, through the editorial communication with the author, help the writer in improving the paper and also help the editor in making decisions. The reviewer should take special consideration of the genuine contribution of the paper and further evaluates it for the consistence with the journal’s scope, the scientific relevance of the researched topic and applied methods.

Objectivity of reviews is indispensable. It is expected the reviewers to provide constructive suggestions in order to support the improvement of the paper quality. Reviewers should communicate their perspective clearly with supporting arguments.  No personal criticism of the author is acceptable.

Any paper is considered confidential and information or ideas found through paper assessment should not be used for reviewers’ advantage.
