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.

revise reviewer decision

It seems our editor accidentally entered a reviewer decision. Now the reviewer himself cannot post his decision or upload his comments. Is there any way to undo this action?

I can send a link to the page if it helps. I'm using a mac and the editor is using a pc.

thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Matt,

We don't allow decisions to be undone for the sake of record-keeping, but you can work around it. The easiest solution is probably to record a new submission, e.g. Revisions Required, which should allow the reviewer to complete the review. Then record a final decision once the review is finished. If you want to leave a paper-trail of why this was done, you can do so on the submission's History page under Notes.
