Reviewer Author Problem

Postby nadeemshafique » Wed Oct 13, 2010 5:25 am

I am faceing problem when one of our reviewer submit a paper as author then at the time of reviewer assignment that reviewer(s) should not be available. Due to blind review and long list of reviewers some time the paper is assigned to same person(s) which are now acting as author(s).

Someone help me on this issue.

Best Wishes

Hi Nadeem,

Unfortunately, OJS does not currently remove authors from the Reviewer list. When assigning a reviewer, the editor should be able to check the prospective reviewer's name against the submission's author list.
