Revising a manuscript and resubmitting to same publisher?

Can you resubmit a paper to the same journal?

In this case, can I resubmit a paper to the former same journal which rejected my paper once? Answer: It is possible to submit your paper to the same journal, but there is no point in doing so, unless you have extensively revised the paper.

Is revise and resubmit a good thing?

Just as “Revise and Resubmit” is not a rejection, revising and resubmitting your manuscript isn’t a guarantee of acceptance. Some consider a Revise/Resubmit decision as a tacit acceptance, but really there are no promises here, particularly if you are called upon to make major revisions to your manuscript.

Can you publish the same article in two publications?

No, you cannot submit the same paper to more than one journal at the same time. This is known as simultaneous or concurrent submission and is considered as an unethical practice.

Yes. In fact, some journals encourage resubmission after some months. But such resubmission would have addressed concerns from the previous review. In some other cases, Editor can request that a resubmission should have about 50% changes.

Do papers get rejected after revise and resubmit?

A revise and resubmit is not a conditional acceptance. There is no guarantee that if you do what the referees ask for, your paper will be accepted. Especially at top journals, there may be multiple rounds of resubmission, and this is still no guarantee of publication.

What is considered a duplicate publication?

Duplicate (or redundant) publication occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of their own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from publishing an identical paper in multiple journals, to only adding a small amount of new data to a previously published paper.

Why duplicate publication is a problem?

Duplicate publication often violates copyright law and, in the case of multiply published studies, distorts results of meta-analyses, because if the duplication is not detected the results of the duplicate publications influence the meta-analyses results more than would a single publication [2, 3].

What is overlapping and duplicate publication?

“Duplicate (or redundant) publication” refers to an overlap in the content and authorship of a previously published work. In this case, the contents of the duplicate published work might be nearly identical and have at least one common author.

Should I reply to a journal rejection email?

Conclusion: It’s always better to reciprocate than to regret. A frank, free, detailed discussion with the editor regarding manuscript rejection can shatter the clouds of disappointment and manifest new zeal and confidence warranted to become a successful author of a peer-reviewed article.

Should I thank the editor after acceptance?

Answer: Thanking the editor and reviewers after acceptance is not exactly a common practice or norm in academic publishing. Generally, a note of thanks to the editor and reviewers is included in your response letter to the peer review comments. However, there is no harm in writing a “thank you” letter if you wish to.

How do you respond to a publication rejection?

Thanks for your review and comments. They are quite valuable, and I shall go through them for greater understanding, for this and future manuscripts. Thanks also for the opportunity to submit to your journal, and hoping there will opportunities in the future, along with a greater chance of acceptance.”
