  • Instruction for reviewers

The JKASNE has a double-blind peer-review system to improve the quality of manuscripts. Reviewers have the professional responsibility to assist authors in improving their manuscript by giving expert advice to them in the peer-review process. Reviewers also contribute to editorial decisions. When reviewers are asked to review a manuscript, they should keep the information about the manuscript confidential. Reviewers should not use ideas expressed in the manuscript for their own research without the authors’ consent, and should not contact the authors personally without permission from the editor. Reviewers should review the manuscript objectively and appropriately without any bias or personal interest. If reviewers have a conflict of interest when reviewing the manuscript, they should consult with the editor. Reviewers are required to respond to the invitation to review the manuscript by the scheduled time, and to finish reviewing the manuscript in a timely manner. Reviewers should present their comments about the manuscript to the authors courteously. When reviewers suspect misconduct or ethical issues in the manuscript, they should immediately inform the editor and cooperate with the editor regarding any next steps to be taken. The resolution process will be initiated following the flowchart provided by the COPE (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts).
