Benefits, Duties & recognition of Reviewers

 

1.Benefits of Reviewers:

There are great benefits when becoming a reviewer:

 2.Recognizing reviewers:

Reviewers are important to us; Oases Vox’s Reviewer Recognition Program aims to engage reviewers and reward them for the work they do, actually we propose:

Reviewers will have review certificates, end of year review reports and electronic badges.

Reviewers are key to the success of journal and its wider community. This is why Oases Vox journals publish a formal “thank you list” of reviewers in the journal each year.

The Publishing Peer Review Reports pilot publicly recognizes reviewers’ intellectual contribution to accepted articles through the official publication of their reports. Review reports are attributed a separate DOI and are published next to the accepted paper on Oases Vox journals.

The reviewers will benefit from discounts on the paid items or services which will be proposed later by Oases-Vox.


 3.Duties of Reviewers:

   Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.

   Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.

   Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

   Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

   Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

   Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
