We are often looking to expand journal pool of reviewers, which means there will be
a demand for your particular area of expertise.
- Reviewer may anticipate receiving occasional requests to
review papers close to their area of interest.
The reviewing load is modest and should be as per reviewer convenience. Reviewer
is expected to respond to
the invitation as soon as possible, delay in reviewer decision slows down the
whether reviewer agree to review or not. If reviewer decline the invitation,
provide suggestions for alternative reviewers.
- Give comments and suggestions, including about layout and
format, Title, Abstract, Introduction, Method,
Results, Discussion, language and References in a prescribed comments sheet.
- The reviewers should have no conflict of interest with the
authors and the subject matter of the research.
- Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have
conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative or other
relationship with any of authors or institutions connected to the papers.
- The evaluation of manuscripts is made on the basis of their
scholarly and intellectual content without having regard
to the nature of the authors or the institution including gender, race,
ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.
