Following initial peer review, articles judged worthy of further consideration often require revisions, including additional experimentation. However, articles requiring extensive revisions will be at a disadvantage. Revised manuscripts should be received within 3 months of the date on the initial decision e-mail or they will be considered as a new submission, with a separate manuscript number and submission fee. An extension beyond this 3-month period may be granted in order to complete time-consuming new experiments requested by the reviewers, but such extensions must be requested from the Associate Editor at least 2 weeks before the end of the 3-month revision deadline.
If there are any changes to the manuscript’s authorship after the original submission (such as the addition or deletion of an author or a change in the order of authorship), contact the to Editorial office to request a change of authorship form.
Make sure all revisions are marked in the text document by using tools such as underlining, highlighting, and strike-through. Revisions marked using Microsoft Word Track Changes will not appear in the converted PDF and will be returned to the corresponding author.
