Objectives

In this module, we’ll look at things from the peer reviewer’s point of view in order to strengthen our understanding of how the overall editorial process works in OJS. We’ll gain an understanding of how the reviewer receives a request to do a review, responds using OJS, completes the review, and shares it with the editor.

If you are interested in learning more about the considerations of the reviewer in choosing to accept or turn down a request, you may want to look at the Becoming an Editor course either before or after this module. This will give you a better understanding, for example, of the conflicts of interest that may arise for reviewers.

Activity

For this activity, you’ll need to login as the Reviewer that was previously assigned the submission. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be able to walk through all of the steps for completing the review. OJS was designed to make this process as simple as possible, as Reviewers are generously volunteering their time, and we want to ensure they are able to quickly and easily do their work. What do you think? Is it easy enough? What would you change?

  1. Citation text: “…as Reviewers are generously volunteering their time…”, the reviewer can answer the review form in parts and save temporaly their answers?, I mean, maybe the review format is so long that the reviewer need a lot of time to answer.

    It’ll be great that after send de email confirmation to section editor, see a confirmation or a text saying: “Your email has been send” or something because it looks that nothing happend

  2. I completed the process of revising the article, I think OJS should be more intuitive, with a simpler interface
