  2. The editor clicks the View button for the submission, then the  Add Reviewer button.
  3. This opens a new panel in which reviewers can be selected from a list of registered users or a new reviewer profile can be created.
    • Clicking the blue drop-down arrows on the right of a person's name will display additional information, including the reviewers’ interests, review history, and any editorial notes.
    • To select a reviewer click the Select Reviewer button next to their name.
  4. This opens a new panel in which the editor can write a message to the reviewer, set a deadline for receipt of the review, indicate the file to be reviewed, and specify the type of review to be performed.
