Welcome to our For Reviewers area of IUT-JARD. Here you will find tips and guidance on all aspects of the peer review process. How reviewing will benefit your career? and What should you consider before writing your review?
Reviewers are needed for the scholarly publishing process. Academics rely on peer review to corroborate their research and add value to it through critical engagement, before publication. As specialists in a particular area of research, reviewers are well set to assess the soundness of another author's work and share their own knowledge, furthering the research. This act of reviewing also has huge benefits for the reviewer themselves-
There are a number of points it is important for you to consider for every article you review - Ethics
If you have reason to believe that an article is a substantial copy of another work, please let the Editor know, citing the previous work in as much detail as possible.
If inaccurate, unsubstantiated or emotive statements are made about organizations or people in a submitted article, please let the Editor know. If it is considered that the article could be potentially libellous, clarification will be sought from the author.
Although it can be really hard to detect if you suspect the results in an article to be falsified please raise the matter with the Editor.
Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shared or discussed with others unless otherwise authorized by the Editor. Unpublished information or material disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer’s own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be held confidential and not to use for personal gain.
