Tips for Writing a Review Report
Reviewers should consider the following points when writing their review reports:
1. There are two sections to write the reviews; one is for the reviewer’s comments to the chief editor, and another for the reviewer’s comments to the author(s). Reviewers comments to the chief-editor will be read only by the editorial office and will not be revealed to the authors.
2. Reviewers should provide an overall recommendation for or against the publication of the manuscript to the chief-editor.
3. If Reviewers believe that the manuscript requires revision, they are requested to provide constructive comments and suggestions for improving the quality and presentation of the paper.
4. When Reviewers provide suggestions on revisions, they should make it clear if they are mandatory or optional.
