Question Linux correct permissions for .bash_aliases

Above is a search string I tried on Google that produced lots of hits but not much in the way of clues. And I wasn't looking for clues.

So I decided, for the first time, to ask the question here. What are the correct permissions for the .bash_aliases file?
