Hi all,

When a (track) director is also an author, he/she should not be able to see review reports about his/her own papers, nor make decisions. I have filed a bug report and included a patch. This patch blanks out the Peer Review page if the userId of the paper and the (track) director are the same. I think this is essential for fair peer review: the reviewer must be able to trust that he/she will remain anonymous. Ideally, it should not be possible to assign papers to a track director who is also the author of that paper, but failing that, I guess this patch is a step in the right direction.
