Q: How long does it take to review the revised manuscript?

Detailed Question -

I received an email from the AE with a statement: "your manuscript be accepted under the condition that revisions are made". 2 reviewers comments were not serious. They suggested small changes. I submitted the revision with some changes 1 week before the due date. The status remained "revision submitted" for 1 week. I sent email to AE, then the status changed immediately to revision under review till now (about 1 week). I had a paper published in this journal 2 months ago. The revision review then was completed only 2 days after submission. Should I email the AE again?

Thank you for your question. We understand that the journal will consider your manuscript for acceptance after making minor revisions and based on your previous experience you are expecting a quick decision from the journal. There are several factors that influence the time taken to come to a decision post submission of a revised manuscript. Generally, the decision process is much quicker in case of revision submissions compared to initial submissions but during this pandemic there can be a delay if the reviewers are currently not available to review the manuscript. We recommend waiting for at least 3 weeks from the time of submission to write to the AE again to check the status of the manuscript. 

Hope this helps. We hope your hear from the AE soon!
