Reviewer Sign-Up

Reviewer Sign-Up

Overview

The Reviewer Sign-up form allows you to define a form to solicit potential reviewers for your review process and then use the Assignment Wizard to assign reviewers to submissions. There are multiple ways to distribute the sing-up form. If you do not have a pre-set list of individuals whom you want to contact, the link to the form may be sent out via email or posted to a website or on the profile home page asking individual to voluntarily complete the form. If you have a pre-existing list of individuals and their corresponding email address, you would import those individuals and then email them through the system requesting that they complete the form. The Reviewer Sign-up module will allow an admin to manage the responses and non-respondents from the imported list.

When creating a Reviewer Sign-up Form, the intent is to match your reviewer's indicated expertise area to a either 1. a defined track field on the submission form, or 2. if not using a track field, then one or more specific responses on your submission form in order to use the Assignment Wizard to match your available reviewers to submissions for the review process.

Please refer to your X-CD contract for details on pricing to use this add-on module.

To configure using the Reviewer Sign-up form, please contact X-CD, to ensure the reviewer sign-up form is set up properly to be used with your submission module. Ideally, the reviewer sign-up form should be configure prior to obtaining submissions in the system.
