How to send a report?

Once the referee has confirmed he wants to evaluate the article, the review form is displayed.

 

This form contains:

  • Some questions to help the referee in the evaluation.

  • A field to type in some comments and requests to the author. These comments will be made available to the author. The referee may attach a file if necessary.

  • A field to type in some comments to the Editor. These comments are confidential and only the Editor in charge of the article can read them.

  • A drop down menu to select the editorial recommendation : Accept / Minor revision / Major revision / Reject.

When the report is finished, the referee needs to click on the ‘Send my Report to the Editor' green button.

In his referee dashboard, he can see his review is now in the ‘Completed reviews’ folder.
