Excerpt from the P.I.E. Guidelines for Reviewers – Recognition of status

1 Editors and journals must be supplied with comment that is based on the peer reviewer’s professional area of expertise and represents an accurate reflection of this.

2 If a reviewer gives a false impersonation of another person or suggests the work has been conducted by another person, this will be considered serious misconduct.

3 It must be clarified and indicated from the outset if a reviewer should address specific elements of a manuscript.

4 Reviewers must not attempt to rewrite a manuscript to reflect their own style, especially if the work is in sound condition. Signatory to a review must be determined by the journal.
