I have submitted an article to an Elsevier journal and received the manuscript with reviewer comments and a "revision response due date" within the Elsevier evise system.
I am unable to meet that deadline and I need to ask for an extension. I assume it would be the most usual way to ask the editor, and I have done so about a week ago and not received an answer yet.
Now I wonder if there is any way to do this within evise. But if I click on "Agree to Revise" from what I understand I'm asked to submit the actual revised version already (see screenshot). I don't really dare to click the "Confirm" button to advance but may that be the way to ask for an extension also?
What would be the usual way to ask for an extension?
