PhD Reviewer is an online administrative suite that helps PhD Schools take full control of the review of PhD proposals and defenses.
Proposals and defenses are submitted online via easy, step-by-step procedures.
Create simple, tailor-made workflows for your faculty staff and reviewers.
Stay in control with a dashboard-style overview and real-time updates.
Time and costs associated with organizing submission and review of PhD proposals and defenses are dramatically reduced.
Everything is stored within the program giving administrators an up-to-the-minute overview of tasks, activities and information. Nothing can get lost or left behind.
Tasks can be completed at any time via a personal account. Submitters follow an easy step-by-step approach to submit their work. A dynamically updated report allows monitoring of review progress and reviewers have an overview of their current and previous reviews.
Reviewers can be suggested by submitters, chosen from existing experts within the database or added as required. Invitations are sent using pre-formatted email templates that include links so reviewers can agree or decline to review directly.
Follow-up invitations to reviewers and reminders to return reports are sent automatically when deadlines expire. Administrators are alerted when tasks become overdue or delayed.
As well as receiving email notifications, submitters are informed of decisions through their user account, avoiding issues with lost emails that may be filtered as SPAM etc.
Up-to-the-minute reports and statistics give a comprehensive overview of submission information, such as numbers submitted, country of origin, acceptance and rejection ratios, review and handling times etc. Data can also be exported in standard formats such as xml and excel.
As time progresses, details of experts and their areas of expertise accumulate building a valuable review resource. Dynamic reports allow decision-makers to identify long-term trends in submissions and decision etc.

Configurability is important so you get the service you need.
