Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Reviewer performance reporting - detail on reviewer declines

Postby thebigchuckster » Wed Apr 21, 2010 6:23 pm

Hi all,

am just curious if anyone has had to produce detailed reports on reviewer activity - in particular, declines per Reviewer. And if so, how did you go about it?

We have editorial boards for all our journals (who come from our wider population of reviewers) and several external editors have been asking for stats on the reviewers who decline.

The data is obviously there but much of the reviewer reporting is summary in nature and the article report (I believe) only show active reviewers for a particular submission.

We're also looking at adding some extra fields on reviewers to:
- indicate whether they are post-graduates and/or editorial board members
- disable the account for a time period to allow for sabbaticals, extended leave, etc.
but I suspect these will be weighed up against our time budget for OJS user-support.

note: this expands on an earlier post about author statistics (clicky).
