Removing a round of review OJS

I would like to remove a round of review that was accidentally initiated in OJS3.0.2.0. Is there an easy way to do this that does not involve interacting with the PHP code?

Hi @JManager_Murmuration,

See this discussion: New review round while previous review round has not been finished yet

Until those are implemented, you’d need to remove the review round from the review_rounds table in the database. Make sure you do this before you’ve assigned any reviews to the review round.

Thanks for this post, removed the entry from review_rounds worked great. One point, also changed the status of the first round to the correct status id so that it didn’t still appear as complete when it wasn’t. Had to search the code base to figure which was the correct status id (searched for the sentence that appears at the top of the page and found the xml file at ojs/lib/pkp/locale/en_US/submission.xml).

It would be REALLY helpful if there was a pop-up warning “are you sure you want to initiate round 2”… because after 100 reviews, I’ve clicked on “send to review” thinking it was the first round and mucked things up. #featurerequest
