Hi @proyrevistas

yes, I have a profile with the role of reviewer and author.

Are you both an author and a reviewer on the same submission, though? In that case, yes, you’d be able to see the names of the other authors (since you’re also an author on it).


If several of our reviewers are also authors.

In that case as guaranteed the double blind review.
