Consults are an effective way of discussing manuscript-specific questions with Senior Editors and Spectrum staff, as they ensure that the discussion remains a part of the manuscript record. To open a consultation session, go to the Tasks tab and click on the “Open Consultation Session” link.
In the next screen, potential consultation participants are listed by role. Add who you would like to consult with to the list on the right, enter a comment in the box below, and click “Initiate Session.” You will be notified via email when there is a reply from the other participants.
We also encourage you to reach out to us and other Editors on our Slack channel! If you do not have access to Slack, please contact us.
