TIE - Revised Submission
Submission of a revised for review
If an editor decides not to accept your manuscript, they may provide you with a decision that allows for reconsideration. If so, Open ScholarOne® Manuscripts web http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tie-ieee and find the paper on your submission dashboard. The Actions column provides you with links to create a revision (for decision types of Minor Revision or Major Revision) or a resubmission (for decision types of Reject with Resubmit).
Visit the information for authors page and download the instructions document and the manuscript template.
The checklist TIE checklist for manuscript submissions also applies to the revised stage.
- In the revision flow, the reviewers tend to ask for more explanations, also note that the maximum allowed length is 8 pages and exceptionally up to 10 pages may be authorized (paying an overlength fee). Note that the page count includes the authors’ bios and photos
- In the resubmission flow, please include a cover letter that mentions this paper number and describes the major changes to the manuscript. In particular, please summarize the new results that have been added. This should be accompanied by a point by point explanation of 1) how the previous comments from the reviewers were addressed and 2) how new results added to the paper make it stronger and increase the research contribution. The response to reviewers should be uploaded as a “supplementary file,” in addition to being uploaded as a cover letter so that all reviewers will have access to the file. Lastly, please make sure to highlight the changes in the paper (or at least use a different font color). If the changes are too much, highlight the major additions to the paper. Please do not submit a paper with track changes, as track changes make the paper difficult for reviewers to read.
