Making reviewer comments available to authors

Postby bhattach » Mon Jul 08, 2013 11:32 am

I am having some issues with an archived review. The reviewer sent me (the editor) the comments on a submitted article through email which I uploaded as reviewer's comments, logging in as the reviewer. However, once that process was over, the review became archived.
Is there a way to make an archived reviewer's comments available to an author? As an editor, I am able to log into reviewer's archive but there doesn't seem to be any way to make the comments available to the author or alternatively to upload a file (upload file option is not active in archived reviews).
Thanks for any help.

Hi bhattach,

Authors only have access to reviews mediated via the Editor. As Editor, you can compose an email to the Author and import the peer reviews into it. Thereafter that message will be available to the author.
