In OMP (and presumably other applications) it should be possible to assign a specific subset of review files to each reviewer.

In OMP, for example, this would help to allow reviewers to be assigned to various chapters of a monograph, all within the same review round.

Suggestion 1

Add a category header for the columns to make clear what their content are.

Likewise, a Row Action would need to be added on the Reviewer's name in the Reviewer list to allow the Editor to modify the set of files that was permitted in the above modal in case a mistake was made.

The reviewer's interface need not change at all, except that the list of files should be limited to the subset selected in the above screenshot, rather than the full set of review files for that round.


Suggestion 2

Use the same "category grid" solution that is chosen for Copyediting processes. See Copyediting.

Advantages:

  • Makes the Editor conversant with the same set of tools for both processes (review and editing)
  • May allow considerable code reuse between Review and Copyediting

Disadvantages:

  • The Copyediting process doesn't have a fully resolved spec yet
  • It's potentially more complicated for situtations where reviewers aren't normally assigned different sets of files (e.g. typical situation in OJS)
  • Will require considerable rewriting work beyond what's envisioned for Reviews
