How to retract a document

What does retracting a document mean?

It means that the file gets removed from the Review list, usually because you are about to review it.

Why should I retract a chapter?

If you are reviewing a chapter, please retract the chapter so others know it is being worked on. Otherwise two people may be reviewing the same document. This is a mis-use of precious reviewer time, and causes extra work for the author.

How do I retract a document?
  1. Navigate to the folder containing the document.
  2. Click on the filename to go to the View page for the file.
  3. Click on the down-arrow by State: pending review and select retract from the drop-down list. The state will change to internal draft in the list on the Contents tab.
