Allow authors to self-select their review type (blind, open, double bling)

Our journal represents various perspectives and roles. We accept both research-oriented and practice-oriented submissions and have members who have different preferences with regards to double-blind vs. open reviews. We would like to allow our authors to self-select the review type. We would publish the selected review type on their paper. Unfortunately, it appears that OJS only allows a journal to select ONE type of review for all submissions. This is problematic for us and would like to request a default and the ability to change it on a submission-by-submission basis.



Hi @virvine
Currently, the journal editor can select/change the review type during reviewer assignment as as you can see in the picture. But as far as I know, there is no option for the author to select the review type. Perhaps you may prepare an email template, and before sending the submission to review stage, may ask the author which review type he/she would prefer.
