Blocking guest editors who also contribute as authors from seeing reviewers names of their own articles

Is there a way to block guest editors who also contribute as authors in the same issue from seeing who the reviewers of their own articles are?
We will have this issue for the next couple of issues of our journal and perhaps some of you have dealt with a similar situation before.
Thanks a lot and greetings from Berlin, Germany.

Hello @gmj-de,

When submitting as an editor there is an option to submit as an author:

(This is from version 3.3.0-8 - not sure which version you’re using).

It’s worth noting, that if the user is a journal manager, this will not ensure anonymity - the editor will need to explicitly “opt into” viewing the editorial workflow in the submissions list.
