Reviewer Locator: Automatically Exclude Reviewers from the Authors' Insitutions

Feedback from one of our editors piloting the Reviewer Locator functionality: it will be useful if the tool automatically excluded reviewers from the authors' institutions - if it is only one university that the authors are from it is easy for me to spot and I can decide on reviewers suitability. But if the authors are from multiple institutions and if the names are not easy to spell it takes a while to verify that the suggested reviewers are ok to invite.

    This is an interesting idea and can certainly see the value of the suggestion. Institutions can be broken down into locations, schools, and sub departments. To which level would you suggest excluding reviewers from?

    Appreciate your input as always!
