This is a walkthrough of the review process for a journal manager or reviewer. For the author's perspective on the review process, check here.

You can choose not to send an email to the reviewer by checking the box directly below the text of the email. The deadlines listed under "Important Dates" should coincide with default deadlines you set in the Review Guidelines, but you can change them for special circumstances here. Reviewers must respond to the review request by the Response Due Date and have at least one review done and submitted into the system by Review Due Date. You wll then select the review type: double-blind (authors and reviewers will be unable to see each other's identities), blind (the author will not know their reviewer) or open (all parties know each other's identities/usernames). Make sure to keep your journal review policy consistent.

Review Decision

You will now wait for your reviewer to submit their review decision.

Once you select this button, a window will allow you to select various options for the email you will be sending to the submission's author. You will inform the author whether or not these revisions will be subject to another round of peer review. Since our reviewer selected the Revisions Required option, another round of peer review is not necessary. You can also choose whether or not to send an email notifying this stageof review- if you want a speedy reply, an email notification is recommended. Make sure to select the review files shared by the reviewer to the email.
