Possibly undesirable feature for referees

Postby osborne » Thu Jun 24, 2004 4:38 pm

The layout of the part of the screen in which a referee submits a decision led me to first select the decision type (accept/reject/...), then upload a file of comments ("annotated version of paper"), and then press the "submit report" button. After the file upload, the decision got reset to the default, namely "accept". When I first tested the procedure, I didn't notice that, and I'm a bit afraid that the same might be true for real referees. I guess I would suggest a redesign of the panel, or some explicit instructions, to avoid the problem.
