Rebuttal Stage

What it Does

The Rebuttal Stage creates rebuttal invitations. It should be used to allow authors to post their Rebuttals to the reviews posted to their submissions. It also sets the visibility of all existing and future rebuttals.

When to Use it

The Rebuttal Stage should be run if PCs want to allow authors to post rebuttals to reviews. This stage is usually run after the review deadline, but it can be run before as well.
