Re-assign the reviewer

We have two reviewer for the article (OJS The first is clicked on “I will do the review”, and the second accidentally clicked “Unable to do the review”. Can I start a new review round for only one reviewer and re-assign the reviewer?


Hi Jože,
There is an issue with the 2.4.x series code that prevents you from reassigning a previously-declined reviewer. I came across it recently.

The fix is very simple if you have access to the code (as noted in that post). From Alec’s reply it appears the issue will be fixed in the 2.4.9 release as well.

Hi Roger,

I have read two days ago this issue, but I could not find the file in which it could repair. Now I find this file and location (line 822) and Reassign is shown.

Thank you very much!
