>  Do not contact the author(s) directly. It is important to understand the scope of the review before commencing (i.e., is a review of raw data expected?).

>  Do not involve anyone else in the review of a manuscript (including early career researcher you are mentoring).

>  After submitting a paper to a journal, a reviewer may ask the author to cite 2 (two) of his papers as a condition for accepting the manuscript.

>  A reviewer may reject a paper just because it conflicts with his/her research because he/she does not want someone else to publish on a topic before him.

>  Unpublished paper remains confidential and should not leak to the public.

>  Destroy the submitted documents after completion of the review.
