Video course – Effective Strategies To Revise And Resubmit Your Manuscript

Has the journal asked you to “revise and resubmit” your paper?
That’s a good sign! Revise and re-submit means that the journal editor sees some promise in your work! You still have a chance.


Often, authors think of journal submission in terms of two decisions – ACCEPT or REJECT.

But the truth is that between these two there is one important journal decision that needs to be considered – REVISE and RESUBMIT. 

Authors feel extremely anxious when journal editors ask them to resubmit a paper after making some changes to it. Being asked to revise and resubmit is not a bad thing.
