Reviewer Guidelines

Reviewer plays an essential role in the peer review process. Efforts of reviewers are the key for the objectives of a fair and timely review process for all of our manuscripts and the publications of only papers of the highest quality. We greatly appreciate reviewers for their help with meeting these important objectives.

Fairness of Review

Reviewers shall regard a submitted manuscript as a privileged and confidential document and not meant to be public, and so should not use, share or disclose unpublished information in a manuscript except with the permission of the authors. The review process shall ensure that all authors have equal opportunity for publication of their papers.

Type of Peer Review

SGCE employs double blind peer review, where the referee remains anonymous throughout the process. To keep reviewer confidentiality, we never disclose the names of reviewers to authors.
