Replacement of the author file version

Postby primozs » Wed May 28, 2014 12:27 pm


I have a question about author changing authors version of the submission file. The point is our authors very often submit a submission with the original file not following requirements and needs to be replaced by the author. How to do that?

The only way I found and we are using is that authors go to the review page and upload new file under "Upload Author Version". After that the editor "makes a decision" to "Resubmit for Reveiw" and selects the new authors version as review version. That works quite OK, the problem is that the review round is increased and becomes round 2, although there was no round 1 review. And that confuses our editors.

Now, the question I have is how to achieve that the authors replace the submission file and at the same time send this new file into review without increasing the review round, that is to keep it round 1 if there was no review done yet.

Regards, Primož
