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. Tips and guidance about responding to peer review comments, resubmitting a paper, or corresponding with the journal editor for inquiry or withdrawal of also form an important part of this section.

I have revised my manuscript several times during the manuscript submission, but it is difficult to perfectly meet the requirements/suggestions of the peer reviewer. In fact, due to the revisions, my manuscript's direction is becoming different from what I originally intended. Accordingly I am thinking of declining the revision this time. I could select “Declines to Revise” in the Author menu of the system, but is it possible to submit my manuscript to another journal after this operation? (...

The status of my paper has been “Initial assessment of submissions” for a week. From the note on the journal website, the manuscripts are sometimes rejected before handing to Editor, depending on the contents. The format of my paper is Communication. In general, how long does it take for this status “Initial assessment of submissions”?

I have submitted my manuscript to a scientific journal and got a decision of major revision. I have sent the revised manuscript, but the Editor-in-Chief (EiC) who was in charge had resigned. After that I got a decision of major revision again from the same EiC, though he should have already resigned. Then I have sent the revised manuscript again. It has been long time after the 2nd revision, but the EiC name and the status of the manuscript is unchanged at the editorial management system. I...

I have submitted a paper to a journal, but I've not yet recieved the acknowledgement email. So I contacted the professors in Korea and asked them to confirm if the editorial administrator had successfully received my paper or not. But I was told not to contact other professors from now on, since they are to work on peer review. I have no idea about the circumstances in Korea, and I just wanted to check if my paper was received or not, but I might make the professors in Korea feel bad. Should I...

I submitted one paper to a journal a few months ago. Now I have received the second round of reviewer comments. One reviewer said, "It could be informative to add some stainings of integrin signaling like P-FAK or P-Src and/or TGFb signaling (P-Smad)" Should I add more experiments? My paper topic is about the relationship between one molecular and tissue hardness. It's nothing to do with integrin signaling. If I add some stainings, it means I need to revise paper extensively. Do you think I...

How can I write a financial disclosure for the journal? Isn't it too simple to mention it as 'none'?

I plan to submit to Biological Research. I need to ask the journal to give me a discount on APC while submission. Should I write an email to the editor? When is it appropriate to send this mail?

I have submitted the manuscript to the journal (the approximate IF is 5.5), and received the decision only after 3 days after submission. There is no comment by Reviewer, and Associate Editor (AE) is suggesting the revision and the resubmission as de novo, which looks major revision actually. As for this journal, the acceptance rate is 10% or less, and the manuscripts under the defined criteria are often rejected immediately. The comment by AE says “After an in-house evaluation by the Editors...

My submission stayed at "reviewer invited" for more than two months, so I sent an e-mail to journal. They said they couldn't get through reviewers and suggested that I withdraw my paper. What should I do?
