Two monts ago, I submitted a manuscript (Scholarone Manuscripts). I got major revisions and implemented ALL of them. Then I re-submitted my manuscript. After two days the status changed to under review. Then after five days the status changed to awaiting editor decision and then after two more days I saw my status change to under review again (today is the 3rd day with this status).

Any idea what is happening?

  • I forgot. Also with my article, (revised version) I submitted a 4 pages pdf in which I explained everything that I did in my revised version). Just to help the referees and the editor who handle my manuscript.

    It just seems like the editor's decision was to get more advice from reviewers; maybe the same ones, or possibly new.

  • @buffy That is almost certainly the case. This recently happened where I was asked to review a manuscript after a round of revisions due to the technical nature of the papers methods.

  • So, you believe that the manuscript is back to the reviewers again? But why? The editor disagree? Or...there is a misunderstanding between them?
