What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Notes:
In OCS help page (/help/view/editorial/topic/000007) this text appears (manager):
More than one Reviewer at a time can be assigned to a submission, and subsequent rounds of review can be started by the Director choosing Resubmit for Review for the Director Decision. Review requests can be canceled by clicking the Cancel Review Request link.


In OCS help page (help/view/editorial/topic/000017) this text appears (author):
In addition, the Author is involved in the editorial process, including submitting a full paper, or uploading revised versions, or providing presentation files later as required.




View the screen shots:

=> here the director is able to upload a revised file.

author_active_submission.png (29.92 KiB) Viewed 1572 times
=> here we see that the file needs revisions, as the director recorded "revisions required" and noticed the author


The author's submission details:

Author submission detail view
author_view.png (61.94 KiB) Viewed 1572 times
=> here the author is not able to change his paper. He can only upload an author version which won't replace / upgrade his previous paper.


So the question is how to make the author able to upload a revised version of his works?

HI Ponsfrilus,

The Upload Author Version is actually where the Author should be uploading this -- the new version won't replace the original version, but it will be viewable by the Director as a new Author Version under Director Decision. It can then be downloaded and viewed by the Director; the Director can accept the submission; and then choose between the new or old file to be sent on to Layout. There may be confusion as to what "Author Version" means on the Author's page, and perhaps this should be changed to "Upload Revised Author Version" for clarity's sake.

Cheers,
James

Ok,
but there are no link between the reviewers and this new file? In other words reviewers are not noticed about this new file, are not able to see it and this new file is not reseting the review process/form, correct? If I want to run a second turn of reviewing for this file it means that I had to upload it as revised file, clear reviewers, set new reviewers and start this process again?

Thanks

Hi Ponsfrilus,

Yes, that is correct -- once a single review has been completed, it's basically done. To re-review any file, you have to start a new review from the beginning of the review process -- assign a reviewer, and so on.

Cheers,
James

Hi all:

I would assign the same reviewers in the second turn, but I can´t. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance
