STBC is sponsored by Services Society, to support professional reviewers and volunteers to conduct peer-review process for all paper submissions. STBD's policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others until the date of publication. Therefore it is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will divulge or make any use of its contents unless and until the paper is approved and published. Contents of abstracts submitted to reviewers will also be regarded as privileged information, and handled in this manner.
