Every ScienceOpen member that meets certain criteria is able to contribute to the review process in two different ways: with reviews and with comments. The following guidelines describe the requirements and the rules for commenting on articles.
Reviewers must declare if they have any potential conflicts of interest that may influence their independent judgment and hence result in positively or negatively biased reviews. Declaration of competing interests aims to allow others to evaluate the autonomy and neutrality of the reviewer’s judgment. Competing interests generally arise from personal, financial or professional/academic relationships that result in a divergence between the reviewer’s private interests and his/her responsibilities as neutral reviewer.
