Version 8.1 introduced enhanced ability to customize manuscript evaluation forms on which Reviewers enter their ratings and comments. This allows for more flexibility in gathering information. Some new features follow.
In configuring the Review Questions, you may select from a wide range of response types: Text, Date, Integer, Decimal, List, Yes/No, Yes/No/NA. A Yes/No response type includes the option to automatically request a text response based on the Yes/No answer input by the Reviewer. A List response type can also be utilized with the option of a drop-down list, radio buttons, checkboxes, or a scrollable selector box.
Review Form data may be mined for Editor viewing, reporting, and exporting.
