It also wouldn’t be possible to have fully adapted the paper for the journal publishers journals, journal publisher you were submitting to. If you had submitted to more than one at a time assuming your paper is not a desk rejection. It will then go to peer review. The peer review process can sometimes seem daunting. But it’s important to remember the people reviewing your paper are your peers and they are there to help improve your paper. It’s not as scary as this cartoon may lead you to believe. Peer review happens in stages. Once the author has submitted the paper the journal publishers journals, journal publisher editor screens the paper and decides whether to reject the article or pass it on to peer reviewers. If the paper goes to peer review the reviewers read the paper and make comments for major revisions or minor revisions the editor assesses the review comments and either passes it back to the reviewers for further review or passes the paper back to the author to make the revisions once the author has made revisions the editor decides again whether to send the paper for further review or whether to accept or reject the paper the peer review process does vary between journals depending on whether it is a single blind double blind or open peer review on a single blind peer review the reviewer knows the identity of the author but the author does not know the identity of the peer reviewer in a double-blind peer review neither the author nor the reviewer know each other’s identities this can be particularly helpful in very niche journals where the author and reviewers may know each other in open peer review the author and the reviewer’s identities are known to each other it can also mean that the peer review comments are made openly available or even that the wider community is invited to contribute to the review process remember when submitting a paper for publication that rejection is not uncommon.
And it doesn’t mean that you should forget about your paper if your paper is rejected. There should be some helpful advice in the comments to give you some suggestions about what to do next. You then have several options. You can rewrite your paper and submit it somewhere else. You will need to retail your paper to a new journal publishers journals, journal publisher in the situation but it could be that the initial journal publishers journals, journal publisher you chose wasn’t the best option. You can rewrite parts of the paper and resubmit to the same journal publishers journals, journal publisher changes might have been encouraged by the editor or reviewers or you might feel more confident in yourself about tweaks that can be made you could turn it into a different type of publication such as a conference paper book chapter working paper or something else but don’t just put it in your desk drawer and forget about when you’re asked to make revisions to your paper. Dealing with p peer review comments can be a bit daunting. The first thing to do is breathe and try to stay objective. It can feel personal receiving comments on your work so try to take a step back to help with this. It’s a good to read the review once and then put it away for a bit you can also ask someone else to read the comments for you to get a different perspective on the feedback. The most important thing to is to address all the comments that have been given to do this. It’s good to have a plan. The plan we’d suggest to use is a matrix using a matrix is a great way to organize the review comments and ensure you address every aspect to do this collect your comments in a spreadsheet or table as shown on the slide. You can have a different row for each comment and identify where in the article it is.
You can also add your initial thought about the comment and give yourself a task for each comment to address it. Another helpful column to add is for deadlines that way. You can be realistic about when you’ll be able to complete the revisions and prioritize the tasks based on the time you have and how long they’ll take to address. If you also identify which reviewer left which comment you may start to identify some patterns if you find one reviewer as being particularly harsh for example you could query this with the editor once you have made all of the revisions you need to send a letter to the editor alongside the edited manuscript detailing how you have dealt with the comments and then we wait and wait and sometimes wait a bit more. Getting a paper published can be a long process so it’s important to be patient and then finally hopefully you’ll hear that your paper has been accepted but that isn’t the end of the process you can now share your research and after all the hard work of getting published. You’ll want to do that. A publication strategy can help with deciding how you want to share your work more broadly here we can see an example of a publication strategy with several tips of how you might share your research at this stage. You’ve already had the journal publishers journals, journal publisher article published so you can think about tweeting your paper or maybe going to a conference to present your paper. You could also write some shorter less formal pieces to promote your research like a blog post or perhaps get in touch with the university’s comms and external relations team to find out how to promote your research to the media. There are lots of possibilities for your research at this stage in summary the publication process can take a few months or even longer but with some time spent getting prepared the process will be both quicker and smoother remember that the process can also be emotional but also rewarding and finally the publication process doesn’t end on publication sharing your work is crucial.
