New reviewers, recent PhD graduates, and junior faculty are often asked to review papers for journals. Such individuals are particularly sought by the Journal of Information System Security. There are several reasons for doing so. To advance the field, we must mentor and nurture the new reviewers. The field of Information Systems Security is still relatively new, and it is important to establish some baselines and practices to ensure our review processes are constructive, developmental, and help authors advance the field. The purpose of this paper is to present some fundamental aspects reviewers should consider when conducting JISSec reviews. Despite being specific to JISSec, the comments are generic enough to benefit other disciplines and areas.
