Revising Your Manuscript

Submission Instructions

If you are submitting a revised manuscript, include the following items with your revised submission:

  • Response to reviewers: Address the specific points made by each reviewer. Include your responses to all the reviewers’ and editors’ comments and list the changes you have made to the manuscript. Upload this as a “Rebuttal letter” file.

  • Revised manuscript (marked-up copy): Include a marked-up copy of your manuscript file showing the changes you have made since the original submission. The best way to show these changes is the “Track Changes” option in Microsoft Word. Upload this as a “Marked-up Manuscript” file.

  • Revised manuscript (clean copy): Upload a clean copy of your revised manuscript that does not show your changes. Upload this as your “Manuscript” file.

Figures and supporting information files from your original submission will automatically transfer to your revised submission unless you choose to update and replace them.
