How to prepare your revision
The goal of the revision is not only to answer to the reviewers, but also to clarify the raised points through corrective actions and improvements to the paper. Therefore, authors should include their clarifications in the revised paper to enhance its quality. For all revision, major or minor, the following files should be submitted to the 'Manuscripts with Decisions' busket in your ScholarOne Manuscript Author Centre:
- A response letter to the decision letter. All comments from the Editorial Board should be answered one by one i.e. in the order of comment1-response1; comment2-response2 etc. Following each comment, indicate carefully the changes made in the manuscript to address the concern or provide a rebuttal if you disagree with the comment. Upload the letter as a 'Supporting Document' in the system.
- Revise the manuscript taking into account all the comments/requests from the Reviewers, the Associate Editor, and the Editor-in-Chief
- Mark all changes made in the revised manuscript in RED for better readability.
- If a change of paper type is requested by the Editorial Board, please format the paper into its corresponding format. More about paper format and template are available here
