I had submitted a revised manuscript (after two rounds of review and the decision being 'Major Revision' on both occasions) to a reputed journal in the field of Atmospheric Sciences, on 20th October 2017. The current status of the manuscript is 'Under Review'. Usually this journal takes more than 1.5 months to inform the author know about the editorial decision. But since this manuscript has already been through two major revisions, a lot of time has already passed. This paper is very important...

About 2 months have passed since I submitted my paper to the Journal of Cellular Physiology. The status became “under review” 2 days after submission, and it remains unchanged till date. Also, I received no response was to my inquiry. Does this mean a rejection?

I have submitted one manuscript to an Elsevier journal. I got reviewer comments within 1.5 months. Both the reviewers appreciated the work and had some questions and suggestions for improvement.

I have submitted a manuscript to an Elsevier journal. The manuscript went through peer review, after which I submitted the revised manuscript. The status changed from "Under Review" to "Required Reviews Completed" and it has remained unchanged for more than 1 month. I assume the editor is checking my manuscript, but I feel it is taking too long. Can I send an email to the editor to ask the status? If I can, what message would be appropriate?

My manuscript was rejected by a journal after review, but the reviewer’s comment was helpful and recommended me the submission to its affiliate open journal. The impact factor of the original journal is 0.8, and the affiliate open journal is 1.8. I am reluctant to pay an article processing charge, but would the possibility of accept be increased if I transfer my manuscript to the affiliate open journal? This is my very first submission to a journal, so I want to make something achieved asap. By...
