For your Submissions, you can assign an individual reviewer or a reviewer group to assist with the review and evaluation process. You can add them either at the moment of creating the Call or once created.
When creating the Call > Step 2 (Configuration) you can specify for the allocation to be "Manual" or "Automatic" under the Review Settings section:
If Automatic is selected, you will be asked to assign the reviewer/ reviewer group that will be automatically used for the upcoming submissions:
When selecting Manual, once the Call is created, you can have the following options to assign reviewers:
Volunteer reviewer Invitation
To invite, from the Reviewers tab > click the Add Reviewer bottom:
In the pop-up window, search or add if not listed internally the desired reviewer. A notification will be sent to the reviewer’s email address for this person to accept our decline to the invitation to be available as s reviewer.
Assignment of a single submission
Directly from the Submission: view/open the submission, under the Reviews section click the Add reviewers bottom.
