Knowledge and Information Systems
A: Editorial Manager (the KAIS on-line submission system) already distinguishes revised submissions by adding a suffix 'R#', such as #KAIS-1748R1 and #KAIS-1626R3, for revised paper submissions. R1 indicates the first revision and R3 is the third revision.
A: Handling editors can send reminders using the 'Send Reminder Letter' link under Administrative Functions. A handling editor can also update the reviewer due date for each manuscript, if an extension is being provided.
Meanwhile, Springer currently has automatic reviewer reminders enabled for KAIS, non-responsive reviewers can be un-invited from their assignment. The un-invitation is customizable for each manuscript, and the handling editor is be able to change the number of days or disable the un-invitation for that paper while inviting reviewers. However, this is not specific for each reviewer.
Please email Srilakshmi Patrudu (Srilakshmi.Patrudu AT springer.com) with questions about setting up and sending review reminders.
