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 Unpublished paper remains confidential and should not leak to the public.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