Q: Paper status changed from "Required review completed" to "With editor". What does it actually mean?
Hi, My manuscript is under the 3rd round of review, with R1 acceptance and R2 revision in the 2nd round. After three months of 'Under review', the status changed to 'Required review completed' a week ago, then it became 'With editor'. Any idea about this situation? Does this mean the SE and EIC are making the final decision or they need another reviewer to look at the manuscript? Peer-review can be really miserable sometimes!
