I will resubmit my manuscript after major revisions. Since the reviewer suggested correcting all the grammatical mistakes, I’m going to get it done by an English editing service after making the content-level revisions. In that case, should I mention in the cover letter that the manuscript is copyedited by a professional copyeditor? I’m also planning to it in the response to reviewers document.

Hi all, Recently I received an email from the editor of a relatively high-rank journal that my manuscript was rejected according to the associate editor comments, but he encouraged me to resubmit it after a serious revision. And the next submission should include point-by-point responses to the associate editor comments. I did it and resubmitted about 7 days ago. The online status of my manuscript appeared line "contacting to potential reviewer" three times and "under review" two times. However...

Hi everyone, I am a bit confused and wanted to bug you about something. I submitted my manuscript via ScholarOne and within 2 days my status went from "editor assigned" to "under review". Then in 3 weeks it was "awaiting reviewer reports" and yesterday finally "awaiting editorial decision". I was thrilled because I thought that might mean I'll get an answer quite soon. Unfortunately I looked today and it says "under review" again. I read this as a fairly bad sign: I feel I must have got at...

Hello everyone! I sent my manuscript to a journal with a good impact factor (around 2). They sent the manuscript back and suggested major revisions, which I did. After I submitted it again, the status almost immediately changed to ''Awaiting final decision", and it remains the same for almost 10 days. Does this mean that my manuscript is going to be rejected, because this time, it didn't go through the review process (it would appear ''waiting for reviewers scores’’), and it should, because,...

I submitted a paper to a Springer journal about 2 months ago. The online tracking system status was as follows: 17 Apr: New submission 18 Apr: Editor assigned 08 May: Under review 27 May: Reviews completed 29 May: Under review 06 Jun: Under review 25 Jun: Reviewers assigned. Could you please tell me what is the meaning of under review and reviews completed in this situation? Was the manuscript all this time with the associate editor and just sent now to peer review?

I submitted my paper to IET Science, Measurement and Technology journal, 4 months ago. Now I have received some comments from reviewers, and the status of the paper is 'Reject & Resubmit.' What should I do now? Shall I revise and resubmit or shall I go for other journal?

I have submitted my manuscript in IEEE TCAS-II on 1st Feb 2017, and since 5 months, the status of the paper is "In peer review". Generally how much time does TCAS-II take to complete the review? Is it the right time to send a reminder? Or should I wait for another month?

Dear all, yesterday, I submitted my revised paper that had received a "major revision." Today the status was changed to "Decision in progress." In my experience, it should be "Under review", and then "Decision in progress" a few weeks later, right? We think we have completed 90% of required experiments and responded to every question of reviewers. Thanks.
