Q: In the first round of review, we received the following decision. If we revise a manuscript and resubmit, what is the probability of getting accepted?
Journal's first round review decision: "While the reviewers found the paper interesting, they all agreed that very extensive revisions will be necessary if the paper is to be acceptable for publication in our journal, to make the paper of interest and benefit to a wider cross-section of our readers."
As the reviewers found the paper interesting but mentioned that extensive revisions should be made for the paper to be acceptable for publication, we would recommend addressing each and every reviewer comment, however minor it may seem. This will increase the likelihood of your paper getting published in the same journal.
We wish you the very best in your efforts to get your paper published!
