Q: When uploading my manuscript, can I leave the 'Comment' box blank?

Detailed Question -

My manuscript has been accepted. However, when uploading, there is a blank [box] named ‘Comment.’ Can I leave it blank?

1 Answer to this question

Firstly, congrats on your manuscript getting accepted! So, you must presently be uploading the final files. If so, this ‘Comment’ box must be one of the last fields toward the end of the form. It should be fine to leave it as is, unless you have something to write. However, if it has an asterisk [ * ], it indicates a necessary field, and you should then add a necessary comment or remark. If you really have nothing to write, you can simply say something like ‘Nothing (to add).’ And once this is done, you can begin celebrating! :-)
