Refereeing guidelines

The current refereeing guidelines are provided at this link.

The main objective is to make refereeing a useful process for the authors in particular, and everybody in general, clearly showing that good science is built on an informed and polite (sometimes tough, but always diplomatic) exchanges of ideas.

Is there anything we should add or change to these guidelines in order to make the job of referees clearer, and the whole refereeing process more efficient at achieving its goals?

Let me contribute to the debate by a reminder of this March 2020 blog post on the subject. This is more about improving the procedure than just the guidelines.
