Description Diego Abadan 2014-02-28 06:27:39 PST
When a new review round is initiated, the previous rounds are not completely frozen: 
- assignments made during previews rounds remain active
- the editor can't edit the round (it is frozen)
- reminders are sent to reviewers
- previous round reviewers can still submit a review

In our view, the correct behavior is to completely freeze the round. In other words: 
- assignments made during previews rounds are closed
- the editor can't edit the round (it is frozen)
- reminders are not sent to reviewers
- previous round reviewers cannot submit a review

Or, editors should be able to remove reviewers from previous rounds.

regards,
Diego

Diego, moving for consideration to OJS 3.0b. We're unlikely to make fundamental changes in the behavior of the review process for OJS 2.x. We'd also need to survey editors to see what they expected -- I suspect we'll have some expecting each behavior.
