Extending Deadlines for Authors and Reviewers


How do I extend a reviewer deadline?

Go to the page ‘Awaiting Reviewer Scores’  Click on the magnifying glass symbol next to the reviewers name. Scroll down to Grant an Extension – and select the date from the calendar.  This will automatically adjust the dates the reminders are sent.

On a revision or resubmission how do I extend an author deadline?

An author is not able to submit a revision or resubmission once the deadline has passed unless you grant them an extension. To grant an extension go to the calendar located in the Peer Review Milestones section of the Manuscript Information tab. The altered date displays in the audit trail and in the Author Centre. The reminder schedule will be automatically adjusted to reflect the new date.
