Reviewer Discussion

I have a number of EiCs who want their AEs to have the ability to start a reviewer discussion. Reviewer names would need to remain blinded. I believe this feature is available in Editorial Manager.

    I agree with Petra. It's really hard as an AE to know how to calibrate across reviews that range from reject to accept. Discussion would help bring them to some consensus.

    As an AE I find this feature extremely important. On numerous papers I have reviews on the full spectrum from accept/minor revision to reject. I have no way to calibrate the reviewers and the discussion feature would be the way to do it. I expect that this might also lead to more reviewer acceptance of the final decision and a higher acceptance to review the next revision. So - this would make my life a lot easier! The PCS submission system does this well, if an example is needed.
