Suggestion: review copies to all referees

Postby soj » Mon Nov 13, 2006 2:22 pm

When our reviewers get manuscripts to review and later receive the author's responses after each round, we should like to also include copies of the reviews by all the other referees. Our reviewers are accustomed to this practice among other journals.

Thanks for all your hard work! soj

Hi Soj,

This is possible using the following process:
  • Once all reviews are in, the Editor clicks the letter icon beside "Notify Author" at the bottom of the submission's review page. This allows the editor to notify the author of the editorial decision.
  • The Editor composes the email to be sent to the author. At the bottom of the page, the Editor checks the box labeled "After sending, present an editable BCC copy to send to reviewers" and sends the msesage.
  • After sending, the Editor will be presented with the same message, but now CC'd to the Reviewers, and given the opportunity to modify it as desired.
Regards,
