This unit will introduce the Review Forms, show you how to build them, and how to use them for your journal.
You will want to follow this unit closely, as it might be a little challenging at first. Getting this right is important though, because the peer review process is critical to the credibility of scholarly/scientific journals. As well, providing the volunteer reviewers with a usable set of procedures to follow will help to ensure they will deliver their best work and return to review for your journal again in the future. Having a community of dedicated reviewers is a key aspect to the long-term sustainability of a journal, and spending time here at the beginning can help ensure this.
Please read the section on Review Forms in the OJS User Guide.
TIP: In OJS, “Form Items” are essentially the form questions.
For this activity, follow the instructions for creating a new review form, and be sure to include at least:
- One yes/no question
- One likert scale-type question (i.e., on a scale of 1 – 5, rate this article)
- One extended textbox question
Getting the Review Forms to work the way that you want can be a little tricky at first. Did you have any problems? Please post your comments below.
