Abstracts which are assigned wont be unassigned from someone automatically even if they have updated their topics/expertise. The reasons include that they may have already submitted reviews on some of those abstracts, they may have wrongly changed the topic among other possible reasons we never made the unassignment automatic.

For unassigning abstracts manually, you can do either of the following:

Method 1:

Go to Manage/Assign abstracts

Select abstracts which you want to unassign (you can select up to 30 abstracts at once)

Click on “Assign Reviewers” button in the top right corner

Select the reviewer/s you want to unassign from the selected abstracts

Click Unassign

Method 2:

Go to Contacts

Search for the reviewer whom you want to unassign abstracts

Click on Reviewer’s name to go to their profile

Click on Reviews tab

Click on Unassign button to unassign abstracts one by one

Method 3:

Go to Manage/Assign abstracts

Search for the abstract from which you wish to unassign reviewer

Click on Reviewers & Reviews tab

Click on Delete icon besides the name of the Reviewer whom you wish to unassign from this abstract
