B Reviewer’s Responsibilities
B.1. Confidentiality Reviewers must keep all information about the articles confidential and treat them as secret information.
B.2. Standards of Objectivity The reviews should be objective and neutral within a standard framework and on the other hand, the observations and judgments should be presented with solid arguments so that the authors can use them to improve the article. Personal criticism of authors is inappropriate.
B.3. Promptness  
If a reviewer feels it may not be able to review the article within the appropriate time, he/she must notify the editor and withdraw from the review process.
B.4. Strong Argument Reviewers should express their views clearly with strong arguments.
B.5. Conflict of Interest The articles that are in the process of being reviewed and not published should never be used by the reviewers without the written consent of the authors.  The information and ideas obtained from these articles should be kept confidential and the reviewer should not use it personally. Reviewers should refrain from reviewing articles in which they may have a personal or group interest and delegate this task to other reviews.
B.6. Acknowledgement of Sources Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors.
B.7. Overlap of Sources Reviewers should also notify the editor-in-chief any similarity or overlap between the article under review and any other published article that they are aware of.
B.8. Contribution to Editorial Decisions Peer review can help the editor decide whether or not to accept an article, and can also help the author improve the quality of the article through the editor's relationships with the author.
