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

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.

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 OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

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).

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.
