The editors must ensure the confidentiality of the submitted works until they are published. In case the editors decide not to publish a material, the manuscript should not be used for other purposes without the express written consent of the author.
Reviewers assist the editors in taking the decision of publishing a submitted manuscript. Reviewers are required to treat any manuscript received for peer reviewing as confidential, and must not use the information obtained through peer review for personal advantage. The reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
