Recently, I have gone through a special issue of a journal and in the special issue, in notification to the author section, it's mentioned that
Reviews returned to authors. Papers will be either accepted, rejected, or returned to the authors with requests for changes
There is only mentioned about the revised manuscript due date and special issue published date. Does that mean "returned to the authors with requests for changes" is another form of acceptance? or after submitting the revised document there may become a chance of the rejection?
Thanks in advance.
