This includes answers to the questions most researchers have about the status of their paper and in-depth information regarding tracking the paper's progress from submission to publication.

I submitted my paper to a journal on the 10th of November. It got rejected in 4 days so I wrote a query and my paper was back to "with editor" status again. The editor replied to my email explaining that the rejection was the result of an error. From the 18th of December, the status is "under editor evaluation." What does that mean?

The journal I am going to submit my manuscript to does not require a cover letter.

The cover letter provided by your editing service is addressed to the Science EiC Dr. Jeremy Berg. However, his name is not there in the editor list on the submission page. Should I just address Dear Editor without any name and then choose Science editor from the list (on the submission page)? 2. Science's guidelines for authors doesn't specify when to submit the License to...

I submitted a manuscript to an Elsevier Journal. The status has been “under review” for 2 weeks. After that, it was changed to “Under Editor Evaluation”. What does this status (“Under Editor Evaluation”) mean? Is it likely to be rejected? And what is the difference with “Decision in Process”? Please let me know.

My manuscript has been rejected due to a seroius misapprehension so I made an answer to the Editor, expounding all of the comments and questions of the reviewers including the revised manuscript indeed. After that our papers status changed to : "archiving completed." What does it mean?
