I am currently reviewing a paper for a journal and there’s a section in the ‘Methods’ that may raise a questionable ethical concern on animal handling. The paper has a potential contribution to the field, however, there’s this procedure that harms the animal in the study. I am thinking of rejecting the paper and raise a correspondence with the authors. Will the rejection decision a good decision for the paper?
