For reviewers


Scholarly peer review is the practice of subjecting scholarly work to the scrutiny of experts in the field, with the goal of validating and improving the content prior to publication. In essence, scholarly peer review is the endeavor of one researcher to offer another researcher advice about the acceptability of an idea, concept, or activity.
Peer review is a critical and central part of science and the scholarly publishing landscape.

types of peer review

There are manly three types of peer review: single-blind, double-blind, and fully open.
In single-blind peer review, the authors do not know the identities of the reviewers, while double-blind peer review ensures that the authors and reviewers are unknown to each other throughout the review process. When a review is fully open, the author and reviewer identities are known, often even to readers.

benefits to be a reviewer

There are many benefits to becoming a reviewer. As a reviewer, you can further establish your expertise in a field, get an early look at potentially groundbreaking research, develop critical thinking skills, and gain experience writing and responding to constructive criticism. Even better, you will learn what mistakes to avoid as an author, and gain insight into what editors are looking for in a high-quality publication. Serving as a peer reviewer is a considerable responsibility, but makes a lasting contribution to the publication process.

Module Review

A thoughtful, well-presented evaluation of a manuscript, with tangible suggestions for improvement and a recommendation that is supported by the comments, is the most valuable contribution that you can make as a reviewer. And, such a review is greatly appreciated by both the authors of the manuscript and the editors of the journal.

Ethics In Peer Review

We seeks reviewers who exemplify the highest standards regarding ethics and anonymity within the review process. As an reviewer, you are asked to evaluate manuscripts with utmost discretion while employing your expertise.

Conflicts of Interest in Peer Review

A conflict of interest involves a situation in which a person or group can benefit from the actions or decisions they make in their professional role. In peer review, a conflict of interest occurs when you (as the reviewer) have a personal or financial interest in the outcome of the review process due to your connection to the authors, their funding organization, or their research, of which the editor may not be aware. In such cases, the conflict of interest could interfere with your ability to remain objective while evaluating the manuscript. Alternatively, such a conflict of interest could make a reasonable person suspect that the connection may have interfered with your judgment.

Types of Conflict of Interest
a) The authors of the manuscript are your close friends, colleagues, or collaborators
b) You have a contentious relationship with the authors.
A conflict of interest may arise when you have a professional (or less than professional) rivalry with the authors. If you feel that the authors constantly and needlessly criticize your work, or your research groups often compete to publish similar results first, you may not be able to provide an unbiased opinion of the authors' work. In such a case, it is best to inform the editor that you have a potential conflict of interest, and allow the editor to decide if you should continue to review the manuscript.
c)You may receive personal or financial gain from publication of the paper
d) You are working on a very similar project, which may be hindered by publication of the paper

goal of the Review

The ultimate goal is for you to assist authors in creating the best possible publication that represents the unique and innovative research that they want to share with their peers.
