Obligations of the Assessment Team
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
The assessment of partners helps the editor in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with the writer can also help the writer perfect his writing.
Any selected evaluator who feels that he does not meet the qualifications to assess the research reported in a manuscript or knows that a quick review will not be able to inform the editor and free himself from the assessment process.
Every text received for evaluation must be treated as a confidential document. The document must not be shown or discussed with anyone unless authorized by the editor.
The assessment must be carried out objectively. Personal criticism of the author is not justified. Assessors must state their views clearly with supporting arguments.
