Reviewers
Reviewers participating in the peer review process for manuscripts submitted to our journal are expected to declare any conflicts of interest that may affect their ability to provide impartial and unbiased evaluations. Reviewers should recuse themselves from reviewing manuscripts if they have a personal, professional, or financial interest in the research or its outcomes.

Editors
Editors and editorial board members of our journal must disclose any conflicts of interest related to manuscripts under consideration. Editors should recuse themselves from handling manuscripts if they have a conflict of interest or if they are unable to provide an impartial evaluation. Decisions regarding manuscript handling and publication will be made with transparency and integrity, taking into account potential conflicts of interest among editorial staff.

Transparency and Disclosure
We are committed to transparency and disclosure of conflicts of interest. All relevant conflicts of interest disclosed by authors, reviewers, and editors will be published alongside the manuscript or disclosed in editorial materials, as appropriate. Conflicts of interest will be managed under established policies and guidelines to ensure the integrity and fairness of the publication process.
