Ethical principles of reviewer

Reviewer provides scientific expertise of copyright material, so that his actions should be impartial in nature and are expressed in the following principles:

  • Manuscripts for review must be treated as a confidential document that cannot be transferred for review or discussion of the third parties who do not have that authority from the publisher.

  • Reviewer is obliged to give an objective and reasoned assessment of the findings of the study. Personal criticism is unacceptable.

  • Unpublished data from manuscripts submitted for consideration should not be used for reviewer’s personal purposes.

  • Reviewer who is not, in his opinion, so qualified to assess the manuscript, or cannot be objective, should notify the editor with a request to exclude him from the review process of this manuscript.
