I submitted a manuscript to the journal "Chinese Society of Mechanical Engineers (CSME)" in September 2016. The status is "Under Review" till date. I wrote several emails to the editor inquiring about the status of my paper. But there is no response. In April-2017, I lost patience and I wrote to the editor, clearly mentioning that this email should be considered as confirmation of "withdrawal." For that email also, there is no reply. Few days back, I sent a fax. Again no response. Can I submit...

I submitted an image to a medical journal last week, and the status of my manuscript has been "With editor" for a week. What does it mean? Does it mean it hasn't been reviewed yet? What is the normal time period of  the "With editor" status?

I have submitted my major revision before the time specified by the journal. I am waiting for the response. When I requested the journal to accelerate my review process, I received the following response: "Unfortunately, the manuscript still needs to be assessed by another editor. I will contact you with the final decision once received." What does it mean? Is there any problem with the manuscript or is this some general internal process followed by the journal?

I submitted a manuscript to Elsevier journal on Jan. 19. I received reviewers' comments on Feb. 15.

Reviewer 2 pointed out a few...

I have sent my manuscript to four different journals in five years. In each journal, I have made the majority of changes suggested by the reviewers. Every time I sent the improved manuscript to a new journal, the reviewers would always look for mistakes in English language and experimental methodology in my manuscript and reject it. All the authors of this paper are Mexican researchers. I'm wondering if this could be because of the nationality of the authors. I have spent a lot of money and got...

The current status of my manuscript is “accept,” but I got a message saying “We appreciate your attention to detail in satisfactorily revising your manuscript as suggested.” How should the revision be done? Should I send an email to the journal?

Hi! After I submitted a paper for publication as an original article, the editor said it fits best under the Commentary category of the journal and I need to shorten it to fit it in this category. I am wondering should I proceed with this or would it be better to publish it as an original article in a lower impact journal? Thanks.

I need to send a pre-submission inquiry to a journal. But I can't find the email address for sending pre-submission inquiries on the journal website. It only provides the publishing house contact details or the contact address for client contact. I think those should not be used for pre-submission inquiry. Right now all the submissions are through the online system.
