Reviewer’s Duties. Peer review assists editors in making editorial decisions and editorial communication with authors can also assist authors in improving the paper.  Any selected reviewer who feels ineligible to review the research reported in the manuscript or knows that his quick review is unlikely to have to notify the editor and exempt himself from the review process.  Any manuscripts accepted for review must be treated as confidential documents. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.  The review should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Reviewers should clearly express their views with supporting arguments.  The reviewer must identify relevant published works that have not been cited by the author. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported must be accompanied by a relevant citation. A reviewer should also call the editor's attention to any substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers in which they have personal knowledge.  Special information or ideas obtained through peer review should be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest resulting from a competitive, collaborative, or other relationship or connection with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the paper.
