I submitted a paper to Elsevier journal 2 weeks back. Now I received an email that the paper is being sent to another editor. When I checked the journal site, I understood that it has moved from a Subject Editor to an Associate Editor . What does this mean?

My article is submitted to an Elsevier journal. Six months after submission, it went to "Under review" for one month. Now it's over one month and the status is showing "Under editor evaluation." What does it mean? Should I send an email to the editor or just wait?

I received an email from the editor, with a quote from the reviewer saying "I regret to inform you that the authors failed to address the points I raised in my previous review of this manuscript; in this case, any further comments on this manuscript is pointless." I sent them an email to ask which point we failed to address because I had made the changes in the manuscript that the reviewer had asked for. The reviewer said that the authors failed to update the reference list. However, I had...

The editorial office replied in 5 days that the recommendation was just issued by the handling editor...

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.

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. Around 12 days after submission of my revised manuscript, the Editor sent me an email that the manuscript will be handled by the associate editor, but the status was still "With Editor". Finally, 18 days later, the status changed to "Under review." I am confused about this status. Does it mean that they...

My paper has been rejected by editor with the comments of two reviewers. I would like to know that if I revise my paper according to the reviewers' comments, can I submit again to that journal as a new submission?
