Reviewers are not allowed to share reviews or information about the article with anyone or contact the author directly without the consent of the Journal. Reviewers are not allowed to use research documents/results in the article manuscript without the author's consent.

- Ethical warnings: Reviewers should be aware of potential conflicts of interest related to the article and promptly notify the Journal, including any similarities and significant overlap between the manuscripts under review and published articles known to the reviewers.
