Reviewer Locator: Automatically Exclude Coauthors (Revised)

It would be helpful if the Reviewer Locator results would automatically exclude potential reviewers who are coauthors of the submitted manuscript.

    As we're pushing all journals to Reviewer Connect and away from Reviewer Locator an update won't be made to Reviewer Locator but happy to report an update has been made to Reviewer Connect to prevent co-authors from appearing in the results of Reviewer Connect. For more information on switching to Reviewer Connect please reach out to your usual ScholarOne Contact.

    I think this is essential too. Many Associate editors may not compare the reviewers and the authors' list. This is a major threat to independent peer review!
