If one of your journal's editors has a conflict of interest around a submission - perhaps they are the author or a co-author on the article - you can hide all activity related to the manuscript from them.
To do this:
- Go to the manuscript work area for the manuscript.
- Click the gear icon.
- Click Hide from editor(s).
- Check the box of the editor or editors you want to hide the manuscript from.
- Click Save.
The editor will not see the manuscript among your journals submissions. If they are the author of the manuscript, then Scholastica will treat them as such and only show them the author-side view of the manuscript. They will not see any editor or reviewer discussions, reviews, or the editor notepad.
