Q: What will happen if I make a mistake in the references format in the revised manuscript?
I submitted my manuscript to a Springer journal. I got a decision for major revision the first time, after which the manuscript went for review. Five days ago, I received a minor revision decision, stating that the manuscript can be accepted after changing the reference format as per the journal guidelines. I accordingly made the change and submitted the revised article. However, after resubmission, the reference checking results (enabled by eXstyles) show that five articles are not validated and 13 are not linked, but the remaining 150 articles (thereabouts) are validated. What is meant by not validated? Out of the five unvalidated journals, two are non-Scopus.
