Ethical guidelines for peer reviewers
To advise editors and publishers on expected publication ethics practice.
Peer review guidelines provide basic principles and standards to which all peer reviewers should adhere during the peer review process in research publication. Peer reviewers play a central and critical part in the peer-review process, but too often come to the role without any guidance and unaware of their ethical obligations. These guidelines are intended to be applied across disciplines.
NOTE: This resource is written for editors, publishers, and researchers, but that they can provide an example of practices and procedures that can also help RPOs.
