I may have what you want.  I am the editor of a journal called
Mammalian Genome, and I have developed a database that does all of 
things that you need using the relational database program 4D First,
which can be purchased for $99. The relational database structure 
is much better than FoxPro or other like it because you maintain 
separate files for manuscripts, reviewers, reviews, etc.  If you
are interested, I can provide you with my application at no cost, but 
you'll have to have a copy of 4D FIrst or Fourth Dimension.
