10. Peer Review Workflow Management

The peer review workflow is the process by which all Metadata Records are peer reviewed. It is a chronological series of steps specified by the administrator. The first step is always the submission of the Metadata Record. Subsequent steps are the combinations of the following steps.

a) Assignment Step: In this step, one user orders one or more other users to carry out some other step.

b) Single Person Review Step: A single person review is a review conducted by exactly one person, and may result in one of the following decisions:

· Accept - The Metadata Record is accessioned into the collection, and may not be removed until a user de-accessions it through the Quality Control and Validation module. No further review may be conducted.

· Reject - The Metadata Record is rejected from the collection. No further review may be conducted.

· Feedback – Feedback is requested from the resource contact through email. When the resource contact answers the request from feedback, the single-person review step is repeated.

· Redirect – The reviewer indicates that the Metadata Record should undergo with a preceding assignment step of this workflow.

c) Parallel Review Step: Parallel reviews are a set of reviews conducted by one or more person. While the resource is undergoing parallel review, it may not progress until a specified minimum number of reviews are performed.

The collection administrator and manager are free to create and modify the workflow in any way, subject to these restrictions:

  • The first step (after the default Submitted Step) must be an Assignment Step.
  • An Assignment Step may be followed by another Assignment Step, a Single Review Step or a Parallel Review Step.
