Viewing permissions

Everyone with the correct group or document role can view reviews in RevMan Web. Access is dependent on:

  • Review phase (editorial or authoring)
  • Read/write permissions linked to your role

The Review Dashboard is accessible to everyone, in all phases, for all reviews. 

Shared phase versions are those sent from Authoring to Editorial, or from Editorial to Authoring. Both authors and editors can view these versions.

View a version

To view a version of the review, select that version from the review History and click View. 

A pop up window with the review will appear. You can see the notes for that version of the review by clicking the "Show notes" button, and can navigate between sections of the review in the View by selecting the appropriate section from the "Go to:" drop down menu at the top of the View window. 

Tracked changes and yellow highlighting are always visible when viewing a previous version with Notes or track changes. Click Show notes for yellow notes to appear. The text above the note gives a date stamp and identifies the user who last modified the relevant section.

Please note, when Viewing a version of a review, everything that will be included in a published review will be visible. Sections that will not be published will not be visible in the View of a review version (e.g., study-centric data, some author information, etc.). 

You can close the View pop-up window by clicking the Close button on the bottom right corner, or clicking on another part of the RevMan Web dashboard.
