Notification when a Reviewer accepts or declines a request

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

is it possible to notify Editor when a Reviewer accepts or declines a review request instead of receiving an email sended by him/her?

Thank you,

When a reviewer declines or accepts a request in the system by clicking on the appropriate link, it leads to an editable e-mail response that goes to the editor. The reviewer should then make any changes to the e-mail if desired and click send. The system is already built for this functionality. If reviewers are skipping this last step, perhaps you can edit the prepared e-mail review invitation e-mail to include a link to the OJS tutorial for conduction a review. It can be found here: http://pkp.sfu.ca/files/video/ojs_review/ojs_review.htm.

All best,
