The JBERR Journal follows COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers. The following duties outlined for reviewers are based on the COPE Code of Conduct.
The Basic principles to which peer reviewers should adhere
Peer reviewers should:
· only agree to review manuscripts for which they have the subject expertise required to carry out a proper assessment and which they can assess in a timely manner
· respect the confidentiality of peer review and not reveal any details of a manuscript or its review, during or after the peer-review process, beyond those that are released by the journal
· not use information obtained during the peer-review process for their own or any other person’s or organization’s advantage, or to disadvantage or discredit others
· declare all potential conflicting interests, seeking advice from the journal if they are unsure whether something constitutes a relevant interest
· not allow their reviews to be influenced by the origins of a manuscript, by the nationality, religious or political beliefs, gender or other characteristics of the authors, or by commercial considerations
· be objective and constructive in their reviews, refraining from being hostile or inflammatory and from making libellous or derogatory personal comments
· acknowledge that peer review is largely a reciprocal endeavour and undertake to carry out their fair share of reviewing and in a timely manner
· provide journals with personal and professional information that is accurate and a true representation of their expertise
· recognize that impersonation of another individual during the review process is considered serious misconduct
