What's in the Course

Most often, we talk about journal decisions in binary terms, i.e., journal acceptance and journal rejection. But there is an important and commonly occurring scenario between the two – when journals ask you to revise and resubmit your paper. “Revise and resubmit” is a journal decision that makes many authors nervous because they are not sure about what revisions they should accept and how many changes they can make. The video lectures in this course will help you understand what this decision means and will show you the best way to approach this decision. They will also help you understand exactly what the journal editor and reviewer are trying to say so that you can elevate the quality of your manuscript by making relevant and appropriate revisions to your paper.

By the time you finish viewing these video lectures you will be able to:

  • Approach peer review comments more confidently
  • Identify what journal editors and reviewers actually want you to do
  • Know exactly how to respond to or incorporate each reviewer comment
  • Fix every major problem in your paper
  • Reply to the peer reviewers and journal editors in the most effective way
  • Improve your chances of acceptance

The Premium version of this course includes all the elements of the advanced course and more:

  • Interactive exercises and quizzes to enable you to test your understanding of the lectures
  • Additional videos, templates, and downloadable checklists
  • A final assessment that qualifies you to receive a course completion certificate
