Review future issues?

Postby akhi003 » Tue Nov 28, 2006 12:14 pm

A general question:

Is there an option available to select reviewers on the issue-level instead of the file level? I have multiple files that are all going to be reviewed by the same people (~10) and all of these articles are going to be in the same issue. I didn't know if there is a way to do this instead of assigning multiple reviewers to each file for multiple files (a tedious way).

This is for a future issue and the idea is that the entire issue (and it's articles) will be reviewed by ~10 people before it is published. They will download the files offline and send in their reviews manually (i.e. not through the system).

Thanks,

Nabeel

Hi Nabeel,

This would involve changing the current scheduling process, as articles are scheduled for issues at the end of the editing process; the issue that an article will be published in is usually not known at the time of review. I suppose one approach would be to add a feature allowing reviewers to be grouped and assigned en masse. I'll bring this suggestion up with the development team.

Hi Alec,

Thanks for the information. I think that it could be a useful feature and am glad that you will bring it up with the development team. It would make sense that at times there is probably a greater group of people who review the same items and could be assigned as a group instead of individually.

Regards,
